I think I mentioned that my granddaughter's new best colour is turquoise and I didn't have anything even close. I went on-line to check out Yeoman Yarns Panama because for kidswear it's great - good yardage, easy care and easy knitting. A knitting friend had mentioned last year that she had ordered from the UK and got her order very quickly and easily. I found an ebay website from UK that has very good prices, the postage seemed to be extremely cheap for overseas delivery and they take Paypal, what more could you want? So I clicked this and that and placed my order - the postage was based on 2 to 4 kg for the same price so I ended up ordering 6 - 500g cones which was still within the 4 kg range and held my breath - more is better, right? Within 8 hours, I got a reply that thanks, my order was on the way. It was delivered to my door yesterday, 1 week, by Canada Post and no customs charges!!! OMG, I immediately began thinking of what colours of Cannelé I wanted but I put the brakes on - I'll save it for later!
(poppy WCD) dress is done, almost finished an LSA cardi (Let's Swing Again, Knitwords #44) for Lauren in royal blue WCD and
I'll get Rhiana's turquoise dress done this weekend - I think I may have time to get
that new dress done for me for the Maritime seminar - I deserve to have something new
to show them too, don't I? ;-))
