In the words of my two-year-old, “Appy. Mama’th. Day!”

(This was followed closely by,” Mama’s pain in butt.” Not sure if he’s referring to himself or to me with that one. He didn’t learn it from me.)

Here are the promised pictures of my yarn binge (and there are actually more that came yesterday – I just haven’t uploaded the pictures to the computer yet):

Bottom: Country Kitchen in Fingering weight by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns, Apple in Superwash Merino Sock Yarn by Yarn Pirate, Rose Garden in 50% Superwash Merino/50% Tencel by Zen Yarn Garden, Cannon Beach in Superwash Merino Sock yarn by Yarn Pirate, Soft Coral in Gems Fingering Weight by Louet. Whew!

All of the online shops I bought these from are small in comparison to some of the bigger web stores: further proof that size isn’t everything, because the service from all of them has been awesome and often surpasses that of the larger online stores. Aside from fast delivery, it’s nice to get extra emails about delivery times, questions, or concerns about my order; and then once it gets here, little extra goodies, cute packaging, and handwritten notes – those small kindnesses go a long way, with me, anyway. πŸ™‚ What can I say, I like nice people (who doesn’t?) and they go out of their way to do this in a world where customer service can really be lacking or nonexistent. Okay, I’m not necessarily knocking the larger businesses that perhaps don’t have the time to be so personal and are just concerned about getting the job done right – it’s what happens when you’re big, I guess. All I’m trying to say is that I appreciate these efforts of the smaller ones to make their orders extra special.
