Well, well, well, look who's come crawling back, begging for forgiveness. Why, its WEBS! Apparently someone over there must have gotten the memo on poor customer communication and failure to meet reasonable shipping expectations, so I got a belated email yesterday offering up a free shipping code if I'm willing to give them a second chance. So I'm pondering it. If I can get a good deal on some yarn for Wheat-Ear Cable Yoke, I might take the plunge.
Re: Wheat-Ear--I desperately want to knit it in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, mauve, but at $8+/skein, that's really not an option. I'm a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to clothes (I do so adore fashion, I just can't afford it), and I can't fathom buying myself an $80 sweater, so I can't justify knitting myself an $80 sweater either. You know, until we win the lottery. So we'd better start playing.
Still knitting away on Mrs. Darcy's sleeves, and have also almost finished the Ridged Helmet Hat, which I've yet to post a single picture of. Oops.
