Broken Promises

I did it again.  I broke a promise to myself.  Actually I broke two.  First, I'd promised myself I wouldn't buy more yarn until I'd knitted up a fair amount of what I already had in my stash pile.  But let's be honest here.  No knitter ever keeps that promise so that little slip doesn't really count.  Right??

The other promise,

Mini Mochi hand knit scarf

I'd sworn to myself that I wouldn't start another project until I'd finished my Pebble Beach shawl.

Okay, so that broken promise is my fault.  But who can blame me?

Not many knitters could resist the call of a package of Mini Mochi.  Mini Mochi is one of those yarns that as long as I have a few skeins with me, I'll be able to happily survive being stranded on a deserted island.

A few weeks ago, I was wasting some down time at work & browsing Facebook.  I came across a sale Little Knits was having.  I'd never heard of Little Knits, but that didn't stop me from pressing the Buy Now button.  And then I began anxiously awaiting the yarn delivery.  I quickly realized that I hadn't seen any mention of shipping time frames nor of where the company was located.  I gave it a few days and couldn't stand the anticipation any longer.  I emailed Little Knits to ask about my order.  I have to admit, I was a little nervous about it.  I once ordered a t-shirt for my daughter from one of those Facebook ads that didn't mention shipping times & it ended up taking six weeks to arrive because they had to wait for enough sales to make it worth their while to print the shirts.  Anyway, I contacted Little Knits....

and was pleased to receive a quick response and even happier to learn they where shipping my order Priority Mail.  And ship it, they did.

It's a Mini Mochi party!

It turns out, I had nothing to be concerned about.  Little Knits' customer service was fantastic & their sales prices even more so!  The shop has been bookmarked, I've signed up for their newsletter and I'll definitely be shopping there again.  Just not until I knit up a fair amount of yarn from my stash pile.  I promise.
