651  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Sweat Shoppe ORNAMENT Swap Round 2 (signups closed, Green by 12/6, Send by 12/9) on: December 07, 2011 05:20:08 PM
$80?!?!  Wow, thats insane!  And they're so small too, why so much?  I'm pretty close to the border too, so when I get to the PO, if its too much, I may have to copy your idea! Grin

I know, right??  I was actually joking with my friend that you & psyche were about to get hand-delivered ornaments...  would cost me less to drive to your houses than to send by post!   Wink  Not sure what Canada Post is smoking, but my little ornaments are expensive to send!  I'm going to check at one other outlet tomorrow, just in case the lady I saw today was only considering one (expensive) option.  Otherwise, to the Cheescake Factory I go!!

Holy Mackinaw!!  I went to Canada Post to send today and found out it was going to cost me $80+ to send my ornaments~ Not cool!  Angry  I should have learned from my last crochet swap....  The packages were a lot bigger then, so I assumed this one wouldn't hurt my wallet so much... Nope!

Anyhow!  I politely told the postie where to stuff her fees  Grin  I (thankfully) live very, very close to the USA and so will be driving over on Friday to send out my packages (& will then have an excuse to go to the Cheesecake Factory, which I have yet to visit).  I'll be able to justify the $ spent on a night out by NOT giving it to Canada Post.  Bunch of jerks.  Win-win, right?  Except, of course, that I was planning to send early...  Sorry ladies...  Hope you can understand.

**Update re: shipping prices for those of you who are interessted: I sent all 8 packages using US Postal for less than $23!!!  I will never use Canada Post for swaps again!**

I'm pretty much 'green' already...  dragging this out for some reason!!  I'm just waiting on the eyes for the pickles, which I'll get tomorrow...  I've decided not to post photos of them yet - I kinda want my partners to see them first  Grin  They are friggin cute & funny!!  The baskets are done as per custom requests...  They are honestly one of my favourite new projects and I'm really glad I joined this swap & discovered them.

Anyhow~ Please send your addresses to me if you haven't already...  I'm hoping to ship early next week!

Yay! I think the top right one might be mine. White garter stitch. . . at least I think that's what I "ordered" Wink

You've got it!  The only thing I need to do is add little pearly beads to the tips of the toothpicks so that they look a little more knitting needle-y...  Will be sending soon! Smiley

I have some basket pictures!

For my partners - I know that some of you have already told me which colour/style you prefer, but some of you have not...

Please have a look & let me know which kind you want: white seed stitch (bumpy), white garter stitch (lines), tan seed stitch or tan garter stitch.

Hope you like them   Grin
