A Warm Thank You

I wanted to take a moment to give a warm and sincere thank you to everyone who stops by to check out my blog. I love getting your comments and being a part of this virtual "community." Thanks to you all.

Banff is progressing nicely. I just finished the back a few minutes ago. I just cast on and knit the first row for the front. I'll try to snap a few shots of it tomorrow if the sun peeks out.

I got an order today from Yarnware. I have to admit that I had never heard of them before and found them doing a Google search on "yarn knit discount." But they are having a year end sale and I got 6 skeins of Lamb's Pride Worsted for $4.88 each. And they only charged me $6.95 for shipping. They shipped it by Priority Mail and there actual shipping cost was almost $2 more than what they charged me. So the cheapskate in me thinks they are aces. On top of that, they called me to confirm that it was okay that one of the skeins was from a different dyelot. I don't know if other retailers would have been so courteous to someone making a little bargain bin purchase. I placed my order on the 6th. I placed another order at a bigger, better known site on the 2nd and it just shipped today! Yarnware still has a lot of nice stuff on sale so check them out.
