You Get What You Pay For

Many moons ago I hoped on Etsy in search of a plain Jane sock blocker made is wood. My Father-in-Law is interested in trying his hand at some but wanted to wrap his brain around the basic proportions and concept. I don’t own any wooden ones so I found a deal on Etsy and got my order off and going.

Turns out the shop was in China so shipping took awhile. But after a month I still had no package so I contacted the shop. Who by the way, was fantastic about communication. They found my shipment had gotten lost in customs and they quickly sent me a replacement with a different carrier that had tracking. Soon my package was at my door. Well dears….never shop on Etsy when sleep deprived and nauseated because I got exactly what I ordered but no what I wanted…

One set of adult blockers and 10 sets of child’s size blockers that I will never use because I don’t knit socks for Jellybean or anyone else small. That will learn me to pay better attention while gettin sucked down the Etsy rabbit hole, lol.

The big ones are fine and will suit my FIL just fine.

And as for the little ones….I think Jellybean and I might turn them into Christmas ornaments in the spirit of lemons into lemonade.

Stay tuned…

Happy Knitting!!

  1. Oh dear! It does behoove us to pay attention to where the shops are and what we are buying… I have my Etsy search set to US first, then if I Can’t find what I want I expand it. I wish I could choose US, Canada and the EU, but I have to do that myself, I guess. If you and Jelly bean can’t make enough ornaments, maybe you could do a giveaway, lol. Or sell them your self on Etsy or Ebay. 🙂
