Need for YYMN Hyena Carts that Ship from Canada?

I have done quite a few testers on here, and am considering opening an HC shop. However since shipping is not fun from Canada, I was wondering if there are mamas out there from Canada who are looking for YYMN etc that ship from Canada, before I go and open a shop. Thanks!

This is a copy of my testers thread:

Hi! I have been knitting on and off since I was a little girl, however more recently have rediscovered my love for it!
I am a licensed Sheepy Time Pants knitter
I am hoping to start doing YYMN customs, and need some people to test for me! I have done about 5 different test slots and am now working on refining my techniques like adjusting to avoid pooling etc.
I use the Sheepy Pants pattern. (

General sizing is:
Newborn Small Medium Large X-Large
Hip 12-14 14-16 16-18 18-20 20-22
Rise 13 14 16 18 20

However, I will customize to your measurements.

There will be a $10 non refundable deposit to hold your spot, with the rest due upon completion. I will have them completed within 2 weeks of receiving wool, sooner if I can!

Full price (including deposit) will be as follows, plus postage from Canada. (About $5-10)

Newborn: $15 $18 $20
Small: $18 $20 $23
Med: $20 $23 $26
Large: $23 $26 $30
X-Large $26 $30 $34

Shortrows and a gusset come in all of them. You can let me know if you want wider/narrow legs, and cuffs options are seed, rolled, a ruffle, ribbed, etc. You can choose whether you want an internal dtrawstring, or ribbed waist with drawstring, with your choice or i-cord, braided, doubled chain or twisted drawstring.

I am also able to knit up to 25 Juliette Skirties, with my pattern I just purchased. I am charging the same price for a skirty as longies of the same size.
Sizes are:
Waist 10 12 14 16 18
Hip 12 14 16 18 20
Rise 14 16 18 20 22
Price: $20 $23 $26 $30 $34
There is also the option of me getting you wool from the local Wool shop, if you like, for the cost of the wool (about $7 here, for 3.5 oz)

You will generally need 3.5 oz for nb/sm longies, between 5-8oz for med/large sizes. Of course I would send back any wool not used, unless you don't want it.

Below are some examples of my work.
