My yarn is on it's way!!

I finally got my Tilli Tomas yarn on its way for SKB. I can't wait. I'm actually going to make this one as an overdue birthday gift for my mom, so she chose the Olive shade and I'm using the Pure & Simple with the Rockstar as the inset. I can not wait to get started on this. I ended up ordering through Sarah's yarns . I can't say enough about how helpful she was in getting this yarn together for me after multiple problems, and her prices can't be beat either. $20 for the Pure & Simple and $25 for the Rockstar. Her blog has some interesting information on it about the pricing of this yarn too. I'm in Canada so I'm having someone bring this yarn back for me. I had it shipped to an american address and I think that the shipping information listed in a past post on here may be inaccurate as I had no such issues with the price there.
Anyway, I should be getting this yarn on Tuesday so I'll have to be a knitting fiend to catch up with you guys :)

To be honest, i hate places like this that undercharge. It hurts everyone in the yarn business even though it might be a good deal for us knitters.....
For that reason, even though it is a better deal, i would never support an internet store that undercuts all the others including the LYS

I don't feel that this is an appropriate forum to have this sort of debate, but it's unfortunate that you posted anonymously so that we can't have an intelligent conversation about this.

Good luck with the postal service. I have problems with shipping within country. I looked at using Sarah's yarns after checking with all of the LYS but they didn't carry the Tilly. Sarah's prices truely can't be beat especially when the yarn isn't available, but it still wasn't within the budget.

I wonder if the "anonymous" commenter who "hates places that undercharge" also drives to the gas station that is charging the most for gas and/or stands in the longest line at the grocery store! Sheesh! Get real!
