a life - er - sock saver

About enough yarn for half a sock is all that was left at the end of the only skein I had...

phew! I thought I was going to have a problem on Saturday when I finished this super fabulous sock and didn't have enough yarn to make a second one. I couldn't remember what kind of yarn it was or where I bought it.



Fortunately, I had listed this yarn in my stash on Ravelry and when I went and looked, there it was, plain as day...Louet Gems Quartz...purchased at Threadbear in Lansing sometime last summer.

I shot off an email to Threadbear and Rob replied the same day that yes, I was in luck, there was 1 lone skein left. (the one I should have bought since I needed 2 to make a pair of socks - who reads the yardage anyway?!)

Yay! So today it is on it's way to Chez B destined to be the second of a great pair of socks. Thanks Rob! You're a lifesaver!

This is one of the reasons Ravelry is just so great/useful; all the details you can add in about your projects for future reference. Hurrah for Rav!

What great customer service! Don't you love it when things work out? And I agree with Clarabelle...Rav has saved my tush so many times when I realized I forgot to write down what size I was knitting on a particular project (or some other detail).
