I was very spoiled for a little while, with the Canadian and US dollars being just about even. I could order from the US (KnitPicks for me) and know that if my total with shipping was (for example) $75, then it would only cost me $75.
Now however, an order for $75 ends up costing me about $88. Once in a while, that’s fine. But I’ve been ordering 2 to 3 times a month, at LEAST $50 each time. If you add $10 each time, it starts adding up!
So I have to either find a Canadian supplier with good prices, or try not to order too often anymore. Or buy from the only store in town here that has yarn. They only have Bernat (which is fine, except there are only about 4 color choices) and Red heart (same thing). No sock yarns here, which is what I’m really into lately.
