Ok, I am happy and satisfied. I heard back from the yarn vendor I had the delayed shipment with and my package is actually already in the mail. It was vendor issues holding things up, which was one of the things I suspected might be the case. I know SO many fiber artists on Etsy who are having supplier issues lately with some of the base sock yarns. I begin to wonder... is it the same vendor? It must be. There can't be that many of them.
I still think that it would have been a nice thing if I'd been let know *before* I had to ask, that there would be a slight delay with my order due to vendor problems, but no harm, no foul. Life happens, as they say.
Positive that the delay in getting an answer to my emailed inquiries was in the erroneous contact info on Paypal. They certainly were back to me within 24 hours when I went and double checked emails and did a little hunting for an alternate way to contact them. And I've let them know about the contact info error on Paypal, so hopefully they can fix it. Based on the quick response once I sorted things out, I think they *would* have answered me a while ago but just weren't getting my queries.
I just know I'm going to love my yarn, and there's an end to it. A happy one. :-)
See, I can also blog when I've been wrong, too!
