Taking bets

I had to place an order for some extra wool from Scotland, so I ordered a bit more to make a beret.  At the same time my grand daughter requested a new cardigan and we decided on a Drops pattern.

She is growing up and will be a 11 at the end of the year but I feel the teenage angst already.  She wants this cardigan but in a dark colour because she would like to be a "Goth".  (I've been through that with her aunt!)

So at the same time I ordered wool from Scotland I placed an order with Bendigo Woollen Mills.  They have a nice wool/bamboo yarn that doesn't prickle and is soft on the skin.

Now I have to wait for both wools. 

I have had two Emails.  One from Scotland.

I am placing bets that the goods from the other side of the world will get here first!!

What are the odds?

No takers. I remember when I was a student writing to a friend in Thailand. Two years later, I was in France and he was in England, but he commented that he'd received letters more quickly when he was in Thailand!
