PROGRESS

So far, so good. As you can see the little tank is finished and gone. Boy, I really love Cascade Fixation! Miss Mia was tickled pink with her new top. Have to love it. I'm down to the last 3 decrease sections on the Noro Lily Clapotis. It's amazing what can happen when you make a list that can be seen by anyone. If all goes well, I'll post new pic tomorrow.
Emma and I have been experimenting with dying our own yarn. First few attempts were pretty pathetic. This is a result of the yarn we didn't get through the yarn vendor who shall remain nameless. We both had our hearts set on the fiber and color of yarn we ordered and have not been able to find anything close. Speaking of the great yarn woe, I have given up ever hearing from her again or getting my money back. I have, however, found that the sponsors of the Valley Forge Show are very interested in my story. I have drafted a huge dossier of events with 8 x 12 color glossy photos (ala Alice's restaurant). If nothing else, it gave me the opportunity to scan the pertinent documents and assemble all of the emails in one place.
Enough moaning, better get cracking on that Clapotis if I intend to keep to my resolution.

Still nothing resolved with the vendor? Yikes! I am triply glad that I did not order from her.

So Fiber Arts Market is interested in your dealings with her? I wonder if they have had similar complaints.

She (the vendor) is to be at the Stitches East market in Atlantic City next weekend. Road Trip to kick butt? ROFL. I'm going to be there anyways.
