Getting ready!

I placed a big order with Knit Picks last Thursday. One of the dangers
with Knit Picks for me is that if the order is being shipped to
Canada, the shipping is a flat rate after the first $20 you spend. So
once you've spent that $20, you might as well order as much as you
can, because it's going to cost the same to get it here. (Note: this
is very, very unusual for American companies shipping to Canada; Knit
Picks also charges you an extra 10% and takes care of all taxes and
duties at the border, so there's no risk of terrible "surprise"
charges when the package arrives.) I picked up some needles for my
spoilee, a bag kit for a friend in my guild, and thirteen (!) balls of
the Swish Worsted in Lemongrass Heather to make my mom a Rogue
sweater. The order arrived in a great big box today, much to my
surprise. It only took a week to get here, which is awesome.

So with the needles in place, I only have a few loose ends to collect
up, and I'm hoping to be able to ship my package out to the lovely
Enna later this week. Huzzah!
