Here's a picture of my Peaches 'n Creme stash. I think I may have an addiction.  Cheesy
Yeah, I have a large Rubbermaid tote full - the Walmart by my mom's house has tons of colors on cones for $6.87.  Now, I have tons of colors too.  lol

I'm wishing that I had joined this swap - but, hey, your thread is fun to read even for someone not in the swap.  And since I feel the need to add something HP related so that y'all don't ban me from the thread, I'm knitting a Dark Mark illusion scarf now.  http://thestormmoon.blogspot.com/2007/05/dark-mark-illusion-scarf-pattern.html

Does anyone else have separate folders in their bookmarks for knitting and Harry Potter knitting?  lol

Still OT but I have a HUGE stash of Peaches and Cream and Sugar and Cream yarn cause it's my favorite. Here is a great site to order cones of the variegated and solid yarns (cause you can never find all of the same dyelot that you need... grrr) http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/store-pc.htm

Back on subject....

I finished something!! I bought my first sewing machine and christened it with a project for this swap. Yay!

I just came across that scarf today and I added it to my never ending list of things to make.  I love it!

Ok, so I have never heard of this Peaches and Cream yarn. I don't shop at Wal-Mart, cause the only thing we have close by is the grocery store by itself, but not a Wal-Mart, unless I wanna drive across town.

I will have to go to Wal-Mart and see what's up!

I love Peaches 'n Creme! It's so great to work with, if you want to make cloths, Swiffer pads, and the like.

I'm so jealous of all you ladies in the US...our supermarkets don't sell any crafty stuff, so all our supplies are really expensive. Sad

I love peaches and cream stuff too! I love that it doesnt fray as I'm learning how to crochet Wink all the other stuff frays by the time i kinda figure it out, and that's frustrating!

kathleen- I hear you on that! Living in Japan now is bringing that for me too! craft supplies are more expensive here than they were in the states. I actually have to set  money aside for a run to the craft store, where in the states you can just "pick up" something really quick because it's cheap.

! How about shopping on line girls? My friend just moved to China for two years  (teaching English for ELIC) and I know they have heavy internet restrictions. Is it similiar in Japan?  Is this rule of expensive supplies applicable to most/all NON-u.s. countries? If it is I will be sending supplies out with my swap packages from now on.

Online shopping is just as bad (I have found) for me in Australia, especially when a lot of the good supplies places are US based- that means when we buy we have to convert the price from AU$ to US$.. meaning we have to pay even more! And don't get me started on postage!!
Supplies aren't always "expensive", US just seem to get them a little cheaper. They are also more readily available (from what I can tell) in the US- and so much variety! In Aus, you have to go to specialty stores often to find what you are looking for/need.

online shopping's not bad for me at the minute, because the pound is really strong against the dollar (about US$2 to UK1, where it's usually US$1.30-1.5- to UK1) but customs charges are a total pain, and coupled with postage it's just not worth it most of the time. i tend to try to buy from inidividuals on ebay who are willing to mark it as gift and worth below the customs threshold.
