I almost did not believe it and it was happening to me! WEEEEE! So excited still and it happened hours ago. Okay. So let me calm down to tell ya all about it. Whew.

So I ordered some Opal sock yarn from Diva Knitting because I know she is from here, saw her awesome prices and could not resist. While I was there I was drooling over everything, especially her stitch markers. Such beautiful jewels! I went back and forth on whether to get them :devil: or not :angelgrin: and finally decided to wait until I had more fundage. :( Sigh. So, a mere 3 days later my package arrives. YAY! :happydance: I open up the package expecting to meet my Opal. And yep, there it is in all of its glory. :D

But then I see another small thing all wrapped up. What is that I ask myself? :?? I rip it open and what do I see? What do I SEE? :shock:

Oh. My. Gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beauty. Perfection. It was at that point that I started jumping up and down! My dh thinks I won the lotto or something...finds out its stitch markers and feigns excitement for me. BUT OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! :inlove:

And then I think...did I order them and totally block it from my memory out of guilt? :?? I check the invoice. No! THEY WERE FREE!!!!!!!!!! :shock:

FREE :shock: :shock: :shock:

:happydance: More jumping up and down at this point.

Can you believe it? I mean....really...I never get free stuff. Neva Eva!!!!! And free jewels? :shock: Good Lord have mercy! :cheering:

I just had to share. That just made my whole day! YAY!!!!!!!! :happydance: :cheering:

Don't go running there just yet though...my hosting company just sent me a message saying the *(#&%*_!! server is down! Disappointing since I just switched to them a week and a half ago. Darn technology.

kemp you have the Diakeito Diamusee!! there were three balls at my LYS and i snatched them up on the day i lost my mind and bought everything beautiful, and i love love love them! my favorite buy so far, but i cant decide what to do with them, do you have any suggestions?

for anyone who hasnt touched this yarn or seen it in person, it is much softer than noro and the colors make me swoon.

i have color 39 which is similar to 41 shown here over at divaknitting (http://www.divaknitting.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=44)

Drats! I can't seem to get to Kemp's store! Is anyone else having problems or is it just my server?

kemp

Nope...it was my stupid server! It had trouble two days ago which is really frustrating since I switched to this one especially to get more speed/options for the store. Apparently someone in China has been blocking the hppt thingie...not exactly sure what it all means, but not good! Anyway, it appears to be back up for the moment. I apologize for the inconvenience!
