I did the SAME THING! :pout:
I was looking for an extension cord, and found a Barbie Jeep in the back of the closet. My mother didn't believe me when I said I wasn't looking for my hidden gifts either. I was SO broken hearted!

The yarn I ordered for my swapee shipped today (along with an equal amount for myself, naturally)! And I ordered a custom-made goodie for part 2 of the swap! I really, really can't wait to see how it turns out!

06-08-2007, 08:05 PM

Well, I thought I'd get my yarn yesterday but it was shipped yesterday. Now I'm trying to figure out what to send/make for the 2nd part. Hmmmmm.....

:poke: helloooo!!!! yarn people!!!! i have a swap i need to be getting on with!!!

I wrote notes in all my orders explaining why I needed it shipped Right Away. (because a couple of them I've never ordered from before, so just in case. you know.)

they probably think I'm insane.

but that's ok.

My yarn shipped for the first part, and I already have the yarn for the second part. I am working on the materials for stitch marker making for the second box. I have the beads and the pins but I can't for the life of me find a good source for toggles!

I am on Martha's Vineyard too, and there are NO JoAnn's or Michael's or anything like that anywhere on the island. The closest thing is this really fancy (read: expensive) bead store that MIGHT carry some, but I bet they are solid gold or someting and cost $100 a piece, which I would not use for stitch markers. Even my jewelry doesn't cost that much!

Anyone know of a good source for toggles online?

If I can't order them I just might wait until I go off island in a week and a half to make a mad dash to a JoAnn's or something.

robynbird
06-08-2007, 10:42 PM
I couldn't find a decent amount of toggles at the Michaels or Joanns store here. I bought some at Walmart but only got about 16 at that for $1.88.

I am waiting for my order to get here, it shipped on 6/4, I need to pick up a couple of things locally and then I can send the first part and I will keep working on the second. I did not even think about knitting a thong, what's wrong with me:?? off to check out that pattern:roflhard:

Here is my favorite source for beads and findings:

There prices are great and they ship very quickly. I have never waited more than a couple of days for anything I have ordered from them.

Yay! I just finished shopping online for yarn for my swappee....I think I did well and picked a variety of nice things in colors that she likes....and of course, had to add a few things for myself in the order to get the free shipping, tee hee tee hee! :lol::roflhard::happydance:

I ordered the toggles finally for the stitch markers. I found a pretty good place to get them. There were 50 for $15, so 30 cents for one if anyone else is looking for toggles or beads.

I got them at beadbuddies.net.

I got all my goodies for my pal this weekend and packed everything up for them. Hopefully I'll be able to get to the post office this week to get it. Its going a long way, so it might take a little while to get to you pal.

06-10-2007, 07:54 PM
:ick:still sick... and still waiting for my last order... :poke:still haven't sent my 1st package either. i did buy some things to make stitch markers though.. but i don't think i can make really cool ones. i hope she still will like them.:shifty:

I'm not even close to ready to mail my package yet, so don't even worry about it! I'm sure mine will go out right near the deadline. It's hard when I'm waiting for yarn from a few different places. Although I have considered sending a teaser package because I do have some of the yarn now!! :teehee:

I would just like to say that my swopper is a darling, she has kindly agreed to order some extra hanks for me and include them in the package as I can't get them here, if we can figure out the best way for me to get the extra money to her. Very kind. Also I was guessing about her identity before and now I am not even sure she was in the top 3 or 4 I had listed. I am pretty confused now. I am even more keen for the end of the swop so I can find out who she is! Thank you swopper!

Whoever has me, I'll be out of town from June 21-July 7, so either HURRY or take your time!

I'll send mine from my vacation destination (maybe:whistle:) so my secret pal will have NO IDEA where I'm from!!!:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:

You no longer have to feel like slackers! I have just ordered my yarn. My poor secret pal, her package is going to be coming in just under the wire. Hopefully the second package will make up for my lateness. I'm not going to knit anything, and I didn't get her any knitting goodies:oo:. I just got back this morning from my 3 week tour of Europe, so my Secret Pal is going to get souvenirs for a knitter. Hopefully she'll like them, and it was a great excuse to drag my husband though all the cute little shops everywhere we went:cheering:. Now if I can just manage to wait a month to send it out :teehee:

robynbird
06-11-2007, 11:32 AM

It's like Christmas morning and trying to guess what it is in all that wrapping paper...lol I get to hound the mail carrier again as well. She is really starting to think I'm crazy. She doesn't have many people on her route that go out to meet her and ask if she has any packages for them today...lol :woot: :woohoo::woot:

06-12-2007, 10:46 AM
I have my package with me so I can stop at the post office after work! I think it'll take a while for my pal to get it since its going pretty far. And I practically wrapped whe whole box in tape, so my pal is going to have a fun time trying to open the package up!:teehee:

rebecca
06-12-2007, 11:03 AM
Jeanius80, happy you are feeling better, too!

Ya'll are so funny, I will not state if I have sent my package or when I will send my package, no news coming from me, I'm a vault. LOL, or so I'm trying to be?! I may very well crash and burn and reveal myself by signing my name to my swapper's card, who knows?!

06-12-2007, 11:40 AM
It's only June 12th and the anticipation of getting my first package is KILLING me! This is so much fun. You guys are too funny, and it cracks me up reading about all of you trying to figure out who has you. I can tell you that I haven't got a clue who has me.

This swap is so much fun. and my package is almost ready to go out to my pal... a certain LYS near my Mom is having a SALE and I'm visiting her, and the shop, Friday morning to see if there's anything my pal "needs"!

Haven't been on in awhile, just getting over being sick, yuk!:pout:

Seems, everyone on here has had it, must be a swapper bug going around. But I am on the mend, even managed to send my 1st package out on Saturday. Can't wait to hear, hope my swapper likes everything. I know I did.

Now, the hunt for items for package #2. Oh no, more shopping! :cheering:

I am still anxiously (eagerly) anticipating the package with the goodies for my swappee.

Im SO excited! I FINALLY went to an honest to goodness REAL YARN STORE last week...but I didnt buy my swappee ANYTHING from there. :roflhard: It was all about me, baby!


But Im going back for my birthday...and maybe some things for her will find their way into my basket...:angelgrin: Along with the nummys that Im still waiting for...

I went to Yarn Heaven. :drool:

She had all sorts of stuff I wanted to buy right then and there. Hemp, and Lornas Laces, and Tofutsies, and even some made from corn...DH thought that was pretty cool.

I just bought myself some bamboo...it was just calling me! And I cant NOT answer the call. It would be rude. :fingerwag:

How is everyone shipping theirs? Delivery confirmation? Return receipt? Priority????

itsjustmeghan
06-12-2007, 09:09 PM
i think i'm going to do priority if i can, just because i know i love tracking numbers! isn't it a standard price?
i have a usps account, so i guess i'll just investigate it once the yarn gets here....
and hopefully, it'll be here this week..... :nails:

if shipping is going to be that much, this turns into an expensive venture....between overspending on yarn for someone else....and then spending on yarn for myself.... :teehee:

I always ship priority with delivery confirmation. in the USPS there are flat rate boxes that you ship for one price, no matter how heavy. They may not be pretty, but they are effective!

http://www.usps.com/all/shippingandmailing/23daypackages.htm

I'm right there with you. I actually had DH bring my box in since it looked like rain and he said who do you know over seas. I screamed at him to take the label off so I wouldn't know what country my package was from. I want it to be a suprise. So all I know is that it's someone over seas.

I've been quiet, because I'm having a HARD TIME finding the right yarn for my partner. My swap pal has very specific requests for fiber and color, and I've already looked in 3 yarn shops with no success. I'm going to try one more tomorrow, and see how it goes.

I got a parcel, I got a parcel! :cheering: :woohoo:

Thank you so very much to my swap buddy for all my lovely goodies! I rarely get anything nice in the post, and this has really lifted my spirits. I love the yarn you chose for me, ohh what to make? :think: Plenty of ideas there!

The penguin is now nesting with his other new friends in my collection, and the hand creams feel lovely- I've never heard of that make but they are very soft on the skin. I'm going to love the choccies, too! :happydancing:

Your identity is still very much a secret but I look forward to finding out who you are on the 2nd box!

Here is a photo for everyone to see the lovely goodies I received this morning-

Yippee!! I FINALLY found the yarn my swap pal wants!!!!
:cheering:

I can't believe it took this long to find it....and as it turns out, it was at MY COUSIN'S YARN SHOP! :teehee:

Cottage Yarn in Mint Hill, NC (http://www.cottageyarninc.com/)

I tell ya....I looked EVERYWHERE all over Charlotte at 4 different yarn shops. I could NOT find what my swap pal wanted. It figures it would be sitting at Cottage Yarn all this time....right down the road from my house.

Everyone's packages are looking so great! I'm patiently (ok I'm really impatient, but still) awaiting my package. I have sent mine and it has been received and my pal really seemed to like her stuff. Now I'm almost finished knitting her something and going to be looking for some other neat goodies to throw into the box.

I'm so proud of myself, I'm way ahead of the game this round?! :cheering::cheering:

So heres to waiting for my box! :pray::pray:

But everyones yarns look great.

Looks like I will have to hit the LYS this weekend and pick up a few extra goodies for my swapee, I ordered some stuff online and they emailed that it came back to them with a bad address and it was undeliverable! So they have to send it again, no telling how long that will take, so I will shop locally so I can get it sent out , guess I just include all that (if it ever gets here in the second box)
