Knitting Wicked?

If you are going to knit Wicked and are planning on using Artyarns Supermerino (one of the recommended yarns) I thought you might want to know that Sarah's Yarns carries the Supermerino. Remember Sarah? It 's because of her ethical stance against Tilli Tomas' keystone pricing policy that we became aware of the issue and subsequently decided to use a Consumer Friendly yarn for this upcoming KAL. I emailed Sarah to let her know that one of our chosen patterns uses Artyarns Supermerino and here's her reply:
"We are very committed to Artyarns products; they are made by a lovely husband-wife team, and I have been to their factory in White Plains. They really love what they do, and they are 100% pro consumer. Feel free to let me know if there are any Artyarns Supermerino [link is my emphasis] colors that are not listed on our website that you and your friends [SKC members] would like; we can get them with a 1 week turnaround (shipped to us), and I will be happy to give you and your friends [SKC members] better pricing than offered on our website."
Just thought I'd pass this on to you all!

Discount Yarn Sale also has ArtYarns (and Allhemp6 too) and even though their site says up to 6 weeks, I got my yarn in less than 2 weeks!

I am interested in the Supermerino Wool for the wicked product. A discount sounds great! How do I do this? I like the SM233 color on the website.
