Bait & Switch?

I think I've been the victim of the old "bait & switch" routine.

Let me ask your opinion.

Do these yarns:

look like they will knit up something with these colors?:

I think NOT.

The predominant colors in the kit I thought I purchased is that greenish-blue/teal color. The predominant color in the kit I actually received is NAVY blue. Bleh.

I'm REALLY annoyed now. It has taken an entire MONTH for my (very expensive) order to get to me, and then they send me the wrong yarns.


I just sent them a pointed email with both of the above pictures attached so that they can see for themselves that the colors aren't right. For now I will not bash this particular vendor, but if the situation isn't rectified soon, I will be bashing them all over this blog and anywhere else it's appropriate.

Hi Mary
Nope those colors look different to me too. I am a fan of the teals and greens myself.

I guess you could say that I am a Richmond area knitter. I am a bit south of Richmond in Colonial Heights.Thanks for stopping by my blog and you are more than welcome to add me to your sidebar if you don't think I am too far away :)

I agree with you 100%. The blues are pretty but they are nothing like the colors in the photo. I hope the company fixes their error soon.
