Some losers are sending each other cards, posing as their waifus. It's the saddest fucking thing in the universe.

>tfw your waifu wears those colours

How difficult are gloves to knit? I've only ever done simple scarfs so far. Any good tutorials you know of?

Isn't Valentines 15 of february?

What the fuck is going on?

I do crochet.

Both are quite simple if you want to do simple things like scarfs. You only need to learn like 2 things; turning and normal.

I can't knit so I have no idea how hard it is to knit a glove. It is however quite easy to crochet one. It takes less than one day for me to make a pair of them.

I've done more more complex things, pic related.

There's a thread? Nice.
Cards fucking Soon™
Anyone who is in the cards only section, I apologize. This is a LOT more difficult than I thought it would be as I keep hitting dead ends. Didn't think I'd be playing snakes and ladders just trying to get things together. It's going to be extra hard today seeing how it's already 6:10am and I've gotta shovel all that snow outside soon as my family wakes up in an hour or so.

>>100709371
I AM currently looking for a person who would not mind doing international shipping in the $50+ bracket or a international $10-25 bracket.
There were people who ended up being left out of my spreadsheet due to my own overlooking and I sent out all the assignments with those people left out. If you don't mind those parameters, send me an email.
>>
>>100710538
I would love a gasmask like that
>>
My assignment listed some types of manga he liked. As a sort of supplementary gift I was thinking of including the first one or two volumes from a couple of series that'd fit within the genres, would that be a good idea? Sort of like a sampler. Or should I just pick a short full series?
>>
>>100715815
personally I'd prefer a few taster volumes than one complete series, that way you can pick which ones to pick up
>>

Well I guess that's probably me.
Honestly Blue, if it really cost you too much trouble just skip me, I would feel horrible if it ends up ruining your nights haha.

Resend email. As far as I see, there's only one $50+ without an assignment, and he already spoke up in this thread.

>>100721786
Just did.

>tfw no yandere valentine who wants to be with you forever.

I might as well be dead.

>>100722378
Thanks, I'll see to this right now.

Any estimation on card assignments?
>>
Reminder that if you send a gift to countries with customs tax to mail it to yourself first and then to the recipient declaring it as a gift. I've just received a 23USD fee to collect a mysterious Xmas gift.

Also, if the gift you're sending is from a domestic source it may even work out cheaper in postage to mail it internationally yourself as companies often work on generalised estimates.

>>100737378
>sending a valentine's gift direct from store
I really hope nobody is doing this.
>>
>>100737668
People who are strapped for time prioritise just getting something sent. I know companies like Thorntons do special gift wrapped deliveries for their chocolates, and if you go for floral displays it's a given you'd leave it to their arrangements.

Every single day I walk into it, I feel I can finish it THAT DAY but there's always some error I walk into.

Right now I'm going to focus on the European/Asian non-international group and slowly move my way over to US non-int group. And then fill in all the holes using Internationals. They're like wild cards in a really crazy puzzle.

To the person without a waifu:
You really know how to kill all of my fun, don't you?
It'll probably be done either when I get back from class tonight, or tomorrow sometime.
At least you gave me something to work with, but how am I supposed to pretend to be a cute girl in love with you if you if you're this vague?
Anyway, eagerly awaiting cards assignments.
>>
>>100738668
Sorry if I come off as a nuisance, but I am that guy that didn't get an assignment at 50+, but if I can't be included, I am ok with it, but can I know if so.
>>
>>100741485
You could switch to the 10-25 bracket if nobody wants to do 50 with you?

As far my loose ends go, here's what it's looking like:

>$50+
1 Caribbean, International
1 US, Non-Int

>10-25
1 JPN, Int
2 US, Non-Int

>$25-50
1 EU, Non-Int

I am currently speaking to someone who MIGHT be able to patch the gap for $50+.
As for the other two gaps, I'm not certain how I can fill them unless someone who wanted to participate sees this thread and sends me an email. Not to mention that every time I try to send a message to the JP email address, I get a mailing error.
