My summer was quite stressful - that's the main reason I have been so silent lately on the blog.
All of this had to happen on a Saturday night - and I found myself searching frantically on the internet for yarn shops that offered express shipping...
(I had to reknit the whole thing immediately since the deadline-clock started ticking louder and louder while my nerves were getting tighter and tighter).
Thankfully I remembered Rachel, the owner of the UK based yarn shop Tangled-Yarn, whom I "met" on the wonderful knitting forum ravelry and I wrote her a freaked out message, telling her what happened and asking her if she would be able to send me the yarn immediately, like... NOW!
Rachel answered on Sunday morning (!) and she had already researched all the possible shipping methods and told me exactly what costs how much and when it would arrive and...
...well, to cut the story short: she totally saved my butt!!!!
So 2 days after that I held the yarn I needed in my hands (and maybe even a little more than I actually needed, I mean... since you pay for express shipping you need to take advantage of it, don't you?)
I re-calculated and re-knitted everything in just under a week....
...and now I can breath again!
But I can and will say a huge thank you to the lovely yarn-shop owners out there, that are life saviours whenever a stupid knitter messes up and who listen to all our woes and..
well, provide us with the loveliest yarn ever!
THANK YOU Rachel!!!!!!
