Every time I buy yarn online something goes wrong. This time I bought hand painted cotton ribbon that matched the gauge for the Rowan pattern, but when it arrived it was more like a cording than a ribbon and the gauge was nowhere close to matching. This is my third time getting burned with online shopping; I'm sticking to my LYS from now on.
On the plus side, the gauge was right for the accidentally on purpose sweater from Stitch n' Bitch Nation so I am making that instead. I really like the yarn; its great to work with and the dyes are beautiful. I’ll post pictures when I am a little further along.
