OK . . I won’t really sing. You can thank me later!
You know how much I love The Loopy Ewe. I love their yarns. I love their fast shipping. I love their service. If you’ve read my blog long, you know that.
Here’s an example of how wonderful they are . . I am making another test knit for Laura Aylor and I need one main color and 3, 4 or 5 colors to be used as stripes. I never have a problem choosing yarn from The Loopy Ewe because their photos are always spot on exact. I can’t remember ever getting a yarn and thinking . . it didn’t look like that online. Well . . to tell you the truth, the yarn I’m using for one of my Loopy Academy projects .. I didn’t think it looked like the picture but once I knitted a bit, I can see that it looks exactly like the picture. When rolling the yarn from a hank to a cake, the outside becomes the inside and the inside becomes the outside and in the picture, I had seen the outside, which was now the inside . . ok . . I know . . I’ve lost you but it makes sense . . trust me.
So, I started choosing colors and sometimes, even with really good photos, it’s hard to know how colors are going to look together in real life. I sent TLE an email and said “Help!” and explained what I needed. I wasn’t even thinking about it being Monday because most of the time, I don’t know what day of the week it is anyway . . nor do I care! They’re closed on Monday but yesterday morning, I received an email with a link to a project page they had set up for me.
For the main color, I ended up going with the dark gray on the left. The one on the right was a little too brown. I wanted 5 stripes so I left off the purple-y one on the right bottom.
Thank you to Sheri and all the elves at The Loopy Ewe. I couldn’t
spend so much money do all the knitting I do without you!
