Knitting calendar in a box?
Does anyone have this for sale where they live? (I'm sure that they are marked down by now?) In case you don't know, I'm a school teacher (teaching the children of the military) in Germany and we don't get this here. A friend sent me one for Christmas a couple of years ago and another friend went to the states for winter break-- she went to the DC area and did look in 2 bookstores... but, they were all sold out.

I would love to have one-- if you buy it for me-- I'll send you $ for the item and the postage.

Thanks... so much.

Is this the sort of thing you're looking for? http://www.calendars.com/xq/asp/PID....qx/product.htm

It looks like they do ship overseas http://www.fuzeqna.com/calendars/con...il.asp?kbid=59 or to APO addresses http://www.fuzeqna.com/calendars/con...il.asp?kbid=45 if you want to cut out the middle person.

I didn't know there were such things as knitting calendars. I'll have to scoop one up for myself. :>

Is it any good this year?

I was sort of disappointed by last year's one. There were a few good patterns, but the rest were stuff I'd never knit.

I was surprised by the number of free on the web patterns in it, from pattern companies. I guess they have to fill it up with something if they don't get enough submissions from knitters. Not that this will stop me from buying it again next year.....

I also got it for a good price at Costco but I was disappointed in it. Like another poster said, there are so many patterns in it that are free on the web anyway. I would not recommend that you spend a lot of money on it.

I started to get it but didn't like so many of the patterns that I settled on this one http://www.calendars.com/xq/asp/PID....qx/product.htm it has a lot of fun things. Not patterns just fun....

I did buy it for the first time today. Barnes and Nobles had it for 1/2 price.

Exactly... why I wanted to see if someone could mail it to me ... they are probably 1/2 price now in the stores- but, not if you mail order one.. (and some darn places don't send things to APO mailboxes... grr) AND if they do ship things to you-- they charge way more for postage than it really does cost to mail something.

But, if there aren't really a lot of neat patterns in it-- or many are from free websites anyway.. it's probably not a good deal anyway and I don't feel like I'm missing out now. THANKS all.. for responding anyway.
