Long long time ago, in December 2012, just when the world was about to end (again).. my sister called to ask me what did I want for Christmas?
What could I say? Yarn of course! Drops Lima, one of my favourites.
We agreed that she will purchase 8 skeins of the main colorway and I will top it up with 1 skein of natural white & 2 skeins of moss green. Drops just had a big alpaca yarns sale (what an unforeseen coincidence!) and online yarn shops were low in stock. I ordered my part from another supplier and got it just after New Year. My sister's part however hasn't arrived.
And here starts the fun part:
She emailed the shop and found out that she already accepted the delivery... in Warsaw. Over 330km from our home town. What happened? While she was filling in a form, another Anna X. also filled hers. Two different purchase orders were recorded within less than a minute. Shop workers somehow overlooked the fact that email addresses didn't match and contacted my sisters double to ask if she wanted both of packages sent together. She did. Well, who wouldn't accept it?
It took my sister a while to explain that she not only didn't get the yarn, but hasn't even been to Warsaw lately. It all turned out well eventually, as my alpacas arrived on January 12th,

Sadly, I don't wear my pullover too often because it's too warm. Maybe this years winter will change that!
Have a nice afternoon!
