Somewhere between Central Oregon, Washington (USPS sorting center where my mail to and fro,) and Portland, these woolly wonders are flowing around.
Have you seen ‘em? I have been losing sleeps, sick to stomach, for the past week. The package of knitted samples was sent nearly two weeks ago…the shop still hasn’t received it. For close up details, more pictures here, here, here, a secret knit here/here, and the leg warmer in Malabrigo Twist to be finished with buttons by the shop. Sabrina’s arm and/or leg warmers is a super simple knit, perfect choice to add to your holiday gift list.
Sad day and tough lesson…USPS told me unless it’s shipped Express Mail and it’s insured…I am out of luck! Even if insured, only the cost of the expensive yarn would be reimbursed. :0( Bad news? My resolution to the shop owner should she accepts (or care to hire me again) is 1) pay for the expensive yarns out of pocket and 2) knit those again free of charge.
On the good side, someone will have an amazing warm winter. And me? I will get to knit ‘em again in, of course, much quicker turnaround!
Nuff said. I will make it a great day…after all, I have my husband and children home…me bundled up with my woolly knits…and smelling the roses!
Life is good.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
