phildar arrival

Woohoo, today I got these in the mail:

I ordered them from Knit ‘n’ Tyme in Canada. I wanted the Famille book because of one of the zip cardies in there, and I wasn’t going to order the spring 04 Tendances book, but, well, I’m easily influenced. I need to look through Tendances again, but during the first perusal I did not see anything I wanted to knit. I have another Tendances book that had the same effect. The designs in Tendances seem to be rather fashion-forward, and to be honest, I’m not really happenin’ in the style department!
Good thing: Say what you will about the US Postal Service, but I’ve always kind of liked them. They now have a new service (new to me, anyway) called Click n Ship that allows you to print out a shipping label, pay for your Priority Mail package, and have it picked up at your house. No more trips to the post office! You have to have a scale unless you’re sending in a Priority Mail flat-rate envelope, but still, how cool is that?

    You not a happening styleista! I beg to differ…I find when ordering from places where the shipping is rather high (i.e. Europe or Canada) it behooves one to purchase more just to amortize the shipping. Nice rationalization itsn’t it. I agree, the Tendances is more fashion forward than the Famille, but you may find yourself coming back to the Tendances for ideas. They’ve got some interesting sweater shapes that could translate into different types of yarns.
