I Heart Chez Casuelle
I really, truly, love dealing with Carla at Chez Casuelle, both in person and on eBay. I feel blessed that she is only 32 miles away as well. I also peruse the site to see what she has on sale and what is on eBay. I won a bid on some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn. (I was so drooling over it.) I had planned on going there to pick up some presents for my Favorite Color Swap SP and having won the auction was an added bonus. I contacted Carla to see if I could go ahead and pay for my auction and pick it up in person. No problem! I ended up buying the lovely Shepherd Sock in the Lakeview colorway as well as some Artisan Merino Laceweight in some lovely green and gold colorway. This was the original reason I went up there in the first place because it was at a killer price. I'm not going to state what I bought for my SP, but I think she's going to be happy.
More exciting news - I FINISHED MY JEWELED SHELL AND IT FITS!!!! I will post a picture once I get one taken. This is the first clothing garment I have ever made and I am so happy with the yarn I used. It is a Peruvian pima cotton/angora blend by Arcadia which has a lovely feel to it.
