Count me in!

Well ladies, I am sooo thrilled that Fifi is our next KAL! I actually bought the pattern a few weeks ago, before the nominations even, because I had my calmer from last years Tempting II KAL that I decided wasn't going to be so tempting on me. (Cute top but I just decided it wouldn't look great on me...and you know Calmer isn't cheap-I want something I will wear if I use it!) Anyway when my pattern arrived I realized that I only had 5 skeins of the Calmer, not 6 or so I would need for my project. So I have been looking around emailing websites, ebay sellers, calling my local yarn shops trying to find the correct dye lot. I even ordered some from webs when I was ordering other stuff to see if it would be "close enough" It wasn't...so I was sad trying to figure out what I would do when low and behold Robin posted about Richesseonline I thought what the heck I'll go check them out see if they have Refresh and email them about dye lot....well to my VERY PLEASANT surprise, not only did they have Refresh, but they LIST the dye lot too!!! and can you believe.... I still cannot believe it...they had my dye lot!!!! I mean I bought my yarn over a year ago! I squealed out loud with delight as I quickly ordered myself 3 more skeins. To top it off it was on sale too!!! so let me tell you this MADE MY DAY!!!!!!!

Wonderful! I bought mine from there too and I am using the same color. It will be good to see how they both turn out....

I can't wait for it's arrival, especially since I have downloaded the pattern already.

That is so cool! I had debated whether I should post about the sale or not, b/c I thought it might sound too much like advertising (even though it doesn't benefit me personally!) and now I feel like I did the right thing. Yay!

Glad you got it! Incidentally, that is where the source of my calmer is coming from too - not Richesse but from a frogged Tempting II from last year. I frogged it at Stitches Midwest with the encouragement of two friends who were there with me..it just wasnt' great for me.
I know that this pattern with the texture and cabling will be much better. ;)
