WHEW! That's the sound of me (and Soho Publishing) breathing a huge sigh of relief!
On Wednesday I was supposed to receive a trunk show from Soho (publishers of Vogue Knitting) that included all of the even-numbered garments from the Fall 2009 Vogue Knitting.
I received a box. That was leaking soil. (Yes, soil.)
I opened the box (in front of my FedEx guy, thank goodness). Inside was this:
Phone calls were made, weird, bizarre circumstances were imagined, the worse was expected. The worse being, of course, that all the sweaters/pieces (HALF THE ISSUE!) had been stolen somehow during its overnight trip from the Soho offices in NY to my door in OR.
And wouldn't you know it? In the course of 24 hours FedEx tracked down the lost and lonesome and boxless sweaters, and this morning, merely 48 hours later, they arrived.
And now we are enjoying these lovely pieces through next Tuesday (more literally, in the above picture I am enjoying #30, Loose Fitting Cardigan). Stop on by and say Hello, and try on a sweater or two. While the trunk show is here receive 10% of your purchase of the supplies to knit a project in the Fall Vogue or Holiday Knit Simple.
After all, they went through quite a lot to come see us!
