|More hat inspiration from an FO Friday blog post, |
thanks to The Knitting Squid this time!
Off I went trolling the internet for beautiful color combinations of one of my favorite yarns. Unfortunately, my usual online yarn haunts, such as Jimmy Beans and WEBS, were low in stock of the soft squishy stuff. After much searching and clicking, I happened upon The Cozy Ewe. I was excited to see a huge selection of color as well as the words "sale price".
The choices were almost overwhelming in their abundance but I managed to narrow it down. I clicked through the ordering process, and immediately received a confirmation email. The next day I was surprised to see a new email with the subject heading "Refund from the Cozy Ewe". At first, I was concerned they were refunding my order because they were also out of stock. Upon opening the email however, I was delighted to find that the shop owners had taken it upon themselves to send the yarn by priority mail which was faster and cheaper than the ground shipping I'd selected, and they were refunding part of the shipping cost to me!
A couple of days later this arrived:
|Thanks Cozy Ewe!|
I am still knitting away on the sleeves and collar of my MIL's Emily, but these Howlcats are the perfect portable knitting project for a busy Fall. I cast on for the green one first.

When that is done, I have these taxiing the knitting runway:
|Mmm, yarn cakes!|
