No, they're probably too busy waiting on customers to keep their website up to date, but I bet they'd still, oh, I don't know, answer the phone?

(Am I the only one who gets a little suspicious of a yarn shop whose website is a little too slick?)

Knit Happens, anyone? The yarn store with more money than brains mayhaps?
Yeah, you aren't the only one.

Ugh, Knit Happens. I've been to their actual store. It's overpriced and the yarns are ASS UGLY.

Which explains why Wendyknits loves it so damn much.

See, that I can forgive. It's when they sink a lot of cash into a website, on which they don't do e-commerce or online registration for classes or anything, or even have a list of yarns and color cards, that I object. I tells me that they don't know where to focus their time, energy and dollars, and that they likely won't have much for stock or service.
