OOhhh.. I got a box in the mail!!

SEE??




The return label didn't provide any information and neither did the 'custom's form'.. so, I wondered what was in the box....

What could I do, but open it up as soon as I got home..


AND inside I found....









What is it you might wonder? *It counts rows and stitch patterns when knitting..

but, what I thought was pretty unusual was this..



I just wonder how they were able to 'squeeze the row counter' into the box? Do you think that they needed assistance shoving it in the overpacked box?

The remote control, for size comparison, is a smaller than normal sized remote control.

I had to dig about in the box to make sure that nothing else was in the MUCH TOO BIG FOR THE ITEM BOX.. but, nothing else was packed in the box.

Maybe this is companies they charge so much for 'shipping and handling?' :D

Holy cow, I'm sure glad they were able to find a box big enough for that *huge* row counter! :)

Yes, I hope that they didn't have any difficulties getting 'just the right sized box' for the unusual sized row counter. :D

ha ha.. I know.. I've already taken the box to the 'boxes to be saved' for re-mailing area.. so it can be recyled.
