I was meaning maybe they thought you did, but looks like that isn't the case anyway.

What a weird thing to happen!

Well the High Security Yarn arrived today. After all that, it's not the color I thought it would be. I'm keeping it, though. Lord knows what I'd have to do to return it!! Looks threatening, doesn't it!!

omg Ingrid, what a crazy experience!! They really got this Homeland Security stuff screwed up if I do say so myself.

I'll have to keep this in mind if SU ever buys something overseas off ebay and chooses UPS.

I don't dislike it, it IS pretty, but I was looking for more of a mauve. I'll have to match it up with the other yarn I have and see what looks best with what.



And Jivewhistle--Anything from any other country, I'm going to ask for regular mail. I thought UPS would be quicker, but not when it sits waiting for clearance for days.

Oh yes, that yarn definitely looks suspicious to me. I'm sure glad that the super powers have your SSN#. This is a dangerous situation. Step away from the yarn! Do not attempt to knit with this fiber. Big Brother is watching!!
