It's Finished

The knitting is complete on my Lattice Bag. I have it stuffed with 3 bags of yarn to keep it standing up. Customers can't believe how big it is.

I will be felting this next week. Tuesday night I am starting a class teaching the Lattice Bag so I want them to see the finished bag before I felt it.

I swear it is going to be a full moon tonight!! I dealt with so many weird problems today it is unbelievable. Here is the big one. Last year when we opened the new company, Revenue Canada closed the GST account for The Needle Emporium. I didn't know this until just before Christmas. I pay my GST quarterly and make the payments online. I didn't realize that I wasn't receiving remittance forms. I needed a form for December and called to find out where it was. They told me that my account was closed. I told them that I had been making payments all year. They said, yes you did but your account is closed-we will reopen it and you have to resubmit your forms. The forms came but I hadn't done it yet. I received a call from them today. I might be penalized for not remitting the forms. I told them they had the money but it didn't matter. WTF? You close my account for no reason, I pay you the money I owe you but now I might be penalized. I faxed the forms in today and hopefully this is the end of it.

The bag looks awesome. Holy pain in the ass with the GST stuff ... you'd almost think they would have told you sooner that your account was closed. I hope thats the end of it for you too.

Your Lattice Bag looks awesome! I can't wait to see it felted.

If the government would get their act together and be more efficient and maybe even competent, we would save a fortune in tax dollars.

Bah, government! My dad has his own business too, and he's had trouble with GST at least 3 times. I hope it fixes itself!

Great bag! D couldn't believe that it had to be so huge before felting!

I third the sentiments above: I can't wait to see it felted.
