Yarn Purchase

I'm so excited!! For the second time, I've purchased "novelty" yarns directly from Istanbul, Turkey. My order came today and I am so pleased with the quality of the yarn and the speed of their delivery (7 days! My order 6 days ago from Herrshner's has not arrived yet.) This yarn is similar to Red Heart Tiki which I haven't seen cheaper than $4.99/ball. I was able to order directly from Turkey and pay only $2.58/ball (including shipping). As I said, this is the second time I have purchased from Istanbul, Turkey. My first experience, with a different supplier, was just as satisfying. The yarn I purchased then, I have not seen an equivalent for...but then I haven't really searched either. With that yarn I plan to make the Blackberry Camisole from the March 2005 Crochet! magazine--for myself! It was a wonderful "yarn" day!!!!
