Christmas Knitting up-date:
* Christmas shawl 1 is done
* Christmas shawl 2 is done
* Christmas shawl 3 is paused for now, since I screwed something up and need to pick back a couple of rows
* I’ve been working mostly on my lace shawl (for Mom), I’m on repeat #14 (of 11… *sigh*) I’m going to do at least 15, then check how long it is then.
I’ve started working on the Marvin I want to knit for my sister for her birthday in early October. I knit it in the round instead of flat, and now I need to stuff it before I can do the arms.
The yarn arrived today (my first order from the Loopy Ewe) for my Dad’s socks – I’m thinking I’m going to do the Phineas socks. I’m now trying to decide whether to do them in Cherry Tree Hill (navy) or the Fleece Artist (midnight).
I really like the Loopy Ewe, and want to keep ordering from her, but I have a slightly problem – customs. The duty I had to pay was actually more than the shipping, which is a pain. I order lots of things from all over, and a fair amount of stuff from the states. I’ve never had to pay duty on yarn before, I’m trying to figure out what the difference is that makes this package require it vs. others. Ideas anyone?
