PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Have these items for swap. I'm open to swapping for plants, plant stuff, or knitting stuff like patterns or needles or notions.
1 set Susan Bates circular needles (quicksilvers), 24", size 6 (how I wound up with 2 of these, I'll never know), in original package but I'm sure I used them
a brand-new SanDisk MobileMate MS. I bought it to read my SD card from my new camera but I erred; it's the wrong reader. I opened the package so of course I can't return it. I never used it. It'll come with everything and it can be registered at the SanDisk website for the full warranty. Original retail cost is $19.95.
2 absolutely new Exo3 iPod covers in JackO, a glow- in-the-dark orange. These fit the 3rd generation iPods up to 30 GB.
No hostas thanks, it'll bring in the deer!
I didn't make a real want-list; if not knitting stuff, than house plants. I like bromeliads, cordylines, unusual succulents. LOL, will we ever warm up? I had to e-mail Buried Treasure to hold my order for another month!
Aaargh, just bought a set of a dozen pairs (they're cute, look like little teddy bears). I like sock patterns, especially for sport-weight yarn (gauge 6 1/2 to 7 sts/in) and especially in a lace or textured (not colorwork) pattern. I'd swap for a nice sock pattern.
Opened the plastic thingie, they won't take it back 'cause it was opened. The plastic was so hard to open I wound up slicing off a bit of the instruction book. Not any of the printed area, but still a bit of paper is gone. They can't sell it. I hate plastic clamshell wrappers.
Well that is lame. I have taken things in that type of packaging back before. I hate that packaging also. I guess since I used to work at a service desk I saw people get to return things that I would never have taken back so I argue about it more now. I suppose the instruction book part makes a difference..
A columnist wrote about going to buy a pair of pliers in order to open one of those things - the pliers came wrapped the same way so he threw the pliers under the wheels of a bus! forgot how he open the thing he really wanted. It was recounted in last week's NY Times.
