Planet Penny Cotton Club Update

I’m just slipping in a quick post because I’m away for the weekend.  By now, everyone who was ordered their very own cotton rainbow will have received their pink parcel in the post. As I understand it, those who are not actually using the yarn yet are gazing at it lovingly and squishing it gently, it gets you like that!

We’re all systems go for the next batch, and I have quite a substantial waiting list.  As I mentioned before, I am rejigging the price just a little.  There seems to be a cost associated with every stage of moving money about, whether it’s within the UK or paying for goods in Europe.  I started this because it seemed a nice way of sharing a lovely discovery, and I’m having to learn how to do it as I go along, so please bear with me!

I’ve done a test post to the US which has worked and it took about 10 days to arrive.  I’m prepared to give that a go with the next batch, especially as I have so many lovely people from the US on the waiting list desperate to try out the yarn!  Once I’ve worked out all the postage rates I will update the Cotton Club Page so you can see exactly how much it will cost.

One thing I have to say with the postage is that I am sending everything First Class Post with Proof of Postage and Airmail to the US. It is possible to arrange for it to be signed for in the UK, obviously bumping up the cost, but that facility will cost far more than the cost of yarn sending out of the UK.  Once I have handed over the parcels to the Post Office and collected the proof of postage, it’s out of my hands, so please bear in mind when you order the yarn  that it will be  best endeavours on my part to package it safely and post it to the address I have been given, but that it must be at your own risk.

Over on the Planet Penny Cotton Club page there are already links to take you to members blogs so you can see what they’ve been doing.

At Baxter’s Rest there really is a rainbow…

In the Little Room of Rachell it seems to be being admired at the moment!

Penelope by the Sea over at L is for Love  has done some gorgeous embroidery…

And Mrs Micawber , who was my US posting  ‘guinea pig’, couldn’t wait to get started on her stash…

Please add your blog to the Linky on the page if you have one, and don’t forget to add the PPCC button to your sidebar. If you don’t have a blog but want to share what you have been doing, you can join the Flickr group.

So have a lovely weekend one and all.  I’m off to the theatre tomorrow and then staying with friends in a part of Norfolk I don’t know very well – it’s a big county – so I mustn’t forget my camera!

See you soon x

    Gosh, Penny, I seem to have missed this post (and your comment telling me about it) until today. I’ve been having some trouble lately with Google – blog updates not showing up for days, ditto comments – so I’ll lay the blame at their door. Thanks for the mention.

    I just posted the headband pattern today and included a few shameless – I mean subtle – plugs for PPCC yarn.

    Hope your trip was a good one. :)
