I live in Canada and recently ordered yarn from Hobium in Turkey.
Cost of yarn was only $7.00 US but shipping with DHL (only option available ) was $ 10.00 US.
I know shipping cost more than the yarn but it was worth it to me.
But DHL charged me another 19.88 CA for custom fees. I complained but DHL explained that costs of yarn and shipping fees exceeded the $ 20 Canadian limit due to the exchange rate. It all sounded so ridiculous that I refused the package asking DHL to send it back to Turkey . After contacting Hobium about this matter they're going to refund the money I paid. Which I appreciated. Had no problems like this when I used TNT and FedEx. I would not recommend using DHL, ever.
I just sent this off to my niece for her new baby.
Birthday present for my 2 year old grandson
Namaste. I just finished this sweater for my little grandson who will turn 2 in November. We might be moving into a new apartment any time now, so I wanted to finish it well on time ;-) The sweater is from a free pattern by yarninpirations, called "Child's Knit V-Neck Pullover". The crochet cars are also from a free pattern by Amurushka. My little one is crazy about cars and loves to say the colours! Thank you for looking. Love and Light to all.
Bulky vs Chunky yarn
(First question:)Is there really a difference in weight in bulky and chunky. Knitting hats and slippers now. I have plenty of worsted. Don't like using 2 strands. (Second question:)Would really like to know if I make slippers and hats in worsted, when it really calls for bulky or chunky Do I go up a size in needle or go down. Thanks for your time.
I have a brain itch going on.
In the middle of Christmas knitting, I get the urge to cast on for a new project. (Isn't it always like that?)
A few months ago, I was gifted a pair of size 50 knitting needles by a kind fellow KPer. I am dying to try them! I have a ton of scrap yarn to use up, I was thinking of combining three (or four) stands together to knit a multi colored blanket. A strand of cream, one of black (or navy) and a different color from my stash. I think I will call it the Ultimate Yarn Eater!
Has anybody knit with such big needles? Any tips for me? Opinions? This is just an idea that has been perking around in my brain for a few days.... will probably start after Christmas, so I have time to think some more.
Sigh, back to Christmas knitting.

Aran tunic & cowl
A few days ago, Monday or Tuesday, someone posted a topic on main, I think, with a link to an Aran tunic and scalloped edge cowl, shown in moss green on the picture. I tried later to find the post but it had disappeared from my digest. Does anyone remember this post, or the link? Thanks. Linda.
