Sadly, two of our Oddball Blankets have been eaten by the post office.

The first one was sent to the Netherlands, but never made it back. (She was the 2nd knitter, so the blanket had not really grown that much.)


The second one lost was our 4th blanket. This one had 5 knitted portions, so it wasn't big yet, but still some time had been invested in it.


So, I guess we should each mail our packages First Class or Priority Mail, so we can add 65 cents for Delivery Confirmation. That will help a bit with keeping tabs on the blankets. Plus, we will be able to search for them in the postal system that way.

If you use a Priority Mail Flat Rate Box, the rates are not that bad.

You can also write "HANDLE WITH CARE" on the package, if you want.

They probably will show up eventually so I wouldn't consider them a loss yet. We had a box of checks just show up after two weeks and the box was mangled. No telling what happened, but at least they are here.

Mailing priority is a good idea.

I hope they show up. It's been over a month for both packages, so we've waited a LONG TIME.

I haven't seen Letah around too much on the boards lately. Maybe she's on a vacation? How long will you wait to hear? And if you don't hear will you skip to me? We can alway send it to her later.

One good thing is......I am not sure how she shipped it from the Netherlands to the US but if it was Economy (Surface) Letter Post, it can take 4-6 weeks or more. I have done a lot of international shipping and the last time I mailed a package using the above method through USPS, it didn't get from Washington State to the United Kingdom for 8 weeks. Other times it can take less than the 4 weeks. I am being positive that the blankets will turn up and then we will just have more blankets to give to charity.

I heard from Letah today. She's been a busy girl lately!
The blanket is being mailed to her now.

Well, when I mailed it to the Netherlands, it got there in 10 days. (Mailed 5-25, received 6-4)

SimplyKaar finished her knitting on June 10th, and mailed it to me. Then, it came back to her on June 26th in a damaged box, with some of the contents missing.

She said that she was mailing it again in a smaller package, but I never heard from her again. So, we waited until July 19th. Then, we started a new one.

If the original blanket shows up, we'll continue knitting it. I hope it does, because I want SimplyKaar to be included in our project, and I want my knitting needles back!
