Podcasts I mentioned:


  1. That sucks about the order :( Did you order on etsy? Did you check your etsy purchases? If it shows there that you ordered a different yarn I'd show them that. Or do you have an e-mail receipt of your purchase that says the proper yarn?

  2. Great podcast!! I love your bangle too.
