Oh, how I love Ravelry. As I mentioned in my last post, I think I might be short a bit of yarn for the arms of my Ribby Cardi. I brought the label with me today...Peruvian Highland Wool Color 87M2, Dye Lot 615. I'd seen a skein+some in someone's stash for trade or sell, in the exact color and dye lot. Hallelujah! I bought this yarn over three years ago, so I am so excited to find the same thing!
I dropped her a quick line asking how to arrange a trade or sell, then sat back and waited.
In the meantime, I got a message from starsongky. She has seen my Knitpicks Sock Garden in Zinnia and wondered if I might be willing to sell it. I have a skein+some of this. I'm sure I won't use it, so I told her she could just have it. She wrote back with a "squeee!", and I'll drop that in the mail tomorrow. It made me really happy that she was excited about it.
Shortly thereafter, I heard back from SandraD on Ravelry, letting me know she'd be happy to help me out and I could just have the Peruvian Highland Wool! Yay! Knitting Karma in action!
Speaking of Ravelry, how did we knitters ever survive before it?
