Case in point: look what the Yarn Yenta sent me:
Lots of yummy and tummy-soothing ginger goodies, a lovely hand-knit cloth from the lovely Tirzah. I'm thinking of a scarf out of the brightly colored yarn. What you can't see in the box is four boxes of Thin Mints which have mysteriously become three boxes overnight. I may have been partially (okay, primarily) responsible for the mystery, but dagnabit, I wanted cookies. All in all, totally worth putting pants on for.
Knit Picks was also kind enough to send me some mail yesterday: replacement cords for the one that pulled apart last month.
Things moved along very quickly once they responded to my initial email; they seem to have quite a backlog in online customer service, but I was willing to wait the couple weeks until they got around to me. It was absolutely no hassle, all they wanted to know was which size I needed replaced. All in all, good experience!
In the pursuit of more mail that doesn't involve PayPal, the Yarn Yenta gifted me with one more thing; the gift of Swap:
And since Stinker is not feeling all that photogenic today (we both have runny noses), I leave you with a picture of the in-progress Kyoto Clapotis made from my honeymoon yarn.
I won't wax poetic about it too long, but I'm absolutely loving the yarn and the pattern. I'm just hoping I can get it done before our first anniversary next month.
