** WARNING ** KnitPicks rant to follow. Please skip to the end if you only want sweetness.
Serioulsy, KnitPicks, I love you and all, but a girl needs to be able to check the status of her yarn package. Telling me it has "shipped" is absolutely no frigging help at all. I want to know whether it is currently in Nashua and will be here tomorrow, or in Columbus, Ohio and won't get here till Friday.
I know, in the big picture a day or two doesn't really matter, but when the mail truck drives up, I get a little heart flip waiting to see if there will be a nice large white package of new yarn shoved mercilessly into that tiny receptacle. Not offering a means to track that much-anticipated package shows me that you really don't care too much about the people buying your product. That and the fact that you aren't selling your 1-3 needles in anything bigger than 32" length really burns me. But, since you still offer the best price for good quality yarn, I'll overlook these customer disservices.
Okay, on to the promised sweetness:
The Pea Pod Sweater is done.*
*I still need to sew on the buttons, I only placed them on the band for the purpose of photo taking.
The leaf edging really makes this sweater look nice.

This sweet little sweater is for the second son of a co-worker and friend of my husband, due in January. I will be making a pair of booties in the same yarn soon.
