View Full Version : Disappointing day...

I'm so bummed! I bought ten skeins of this (http://yarn.com/webs/0/0/0/0-1001-1294-1323/0/0/3209/) yarn this morning, in a nice "French Blue"-ish shade. I haven't knit a big project for such a long time, and I planned on knitting a beautiful sweater for dh. (He already picked out the pattern.) I paid $41.00 (can you believe it?!?), and was already anxiously awaiting for it to arrive (I know, it doesn't come that fast...). But I just received an email from WEBS stating that they are SOLD OUT!!

Wait a minute...isn't it bad luck to knit a sweater for your husband?:??

Send them a nasty-gram and DEMAND that your next order is FREE!!!!

You never know if you can get something for free until you ask. ;)

Check out littleknits.com -- they have Nature Wool on sale for $4.95 a ball.

Here's (http://www.littleknits.com/products.php?cat=200) the link.

Hope this helps make your day a little better. It won't be $41 dollars better but close.

You know, that same thing has happened to me each time (3 times to be exact!) I have ordered from WEBS...which is why WEBS is not one of my favorite online stores...I do love littleknits though!:happydance:

I think you're safe on knitting your husband a sweater. I think the curse is only for boyfriends and fiances. :roflhard: Since you already are married it voids the curse.
Sorry to hear about the yarn.
