The first full week of the summer holidays has been busy with playdates, relaxing, pottering about the garden, appointments, planning and some knitting. Mum and I finally plucked up the courage – correction – plucked up the courage to place an online order with a company outside of Canada. Having heard takes of unexpected customs and brokerage fees, I have been reluctant to do it thus far, but KnitPicks seemed to have a straightforward way of dealing with that, a decent shipping rate and lovely, well-priced yarn, so I decided to try it. We both ordered a selection; me, mostly lace weight, Mum went for sock yarn. It was an exciting day when we got home from playing and the box was on the doorstep!
Now I just have to decide what to do with it all, stop doing housework completely and show the children how to make their own dinner!
