You guys are totally right. I needed to get a different shade of gray for my Grandma’s Sweater. I’ve decided to go with Knit Picks’ Dove Gray Heather:
It’s a really pretty soft gray in a similar tone as Dogwood Heather (pink). I think it’ll turn out really prettily.
So, having made my decision, I went to the Knit Picks website yesterday, filled up my cart and hit submit. (I even managed to constrain myself to the single skein I needed, instead of buying fifty dollars’ worth of extra yarn to get the free shipping. Don’t judge me. You know you’ve done it.)
To make sure the order went through (because I’m paranoid like that), I clicked over to my email to see the confirmation email.
Sure enough, there was a message from Knit Picks. In fact, there were two emails. The first was my order confirmation. The second was this ad:
*Insert sad trumpet sound here*
Sure it would have been less than a dollar saved, but it’s the principle of the thing! (And now, I kind of want to go order some more yarn to take advantage of the sale. So much for self-control.)
Now, I have to sit here and play the waiting game. I can’t really start knitting until I have the gray yarn in my knitting basket, so I’ll just sit by the window and harass the mailman until it arrives.
