SP5 Update

I have gathered my gifts, decided what to send in this package, found a box, made layers (for more treasure hunt fun!) with tissue paper, brought the box to work, sealed it up, weighed it (2 lbs, 4 oz.) and now I can't seem to print the paid label for USPS.com. ARGH. I'll talk to the receptionist in a bit about that.

Here's what I'm sending:
  • a mesh lingerie bag (to wash the items to be made with what's inside)
  • inside of that is a pair of Addi Turbo needles, 40" long, size 2
  • 2 balls of Knit Picks' Dancing in color Ballet (pink and purple)
  • stickers for the kids
  • Spring/Summer Vogue Knitting 2005
  • a chick lit summer romance novel
  • I think something else, but now its sealed so I can't remember

I hope that she likes it. I am planning the next package to be all about being an organized knitter, with a binder, page protectors, patterns printed nicely from online, pencil pouch with necessary accesories, stuff like that. The third package is as-yet unknown. Maybe something with that Cotton-Ease?

before you mail it out, check out flat rate boxes at the post office. they are priority mail and ...one flat rate no matter how heavy. but you have to ASK for them

I weighed my package, and it was less to send it in my box by weight than the flat rate box.
