Just to let you all know that the packages are now winging their way to you.
I'm really sorry, but I found it impossible to send the stuff either by FEDEX or UPS - I rang the Indian call centre for FEDEX and they gave me a quote for £30.00 for each package. I told 'em I was sending stitch markers, not exporting the Crown Jewels! And DON'T even ask me about UPS rates.
So, this means that the packages are going by ordinary Airmail, which brings me to the next bit - could I ask you as a well-disposed, not to mention a well-dispersed lot, that when you get the package could you please NOT MENTION THE KNITTING PATTERN HERE UNTIL WE ALL KNOW THAT EVERYONE HAS RECEIVED THEIR STUFF.
I do want the markers checked out and NOT KNOWING THE PATTERN IN ADVANCE SHOULD HELP.
If you could just send me a quick e-mail, please, to let me know they've arrived, then I can tell you when they've all been delivered.
Again, Many Thanks for your time and effort.
