I was perusing through your bio just now and ...
1) We have the same BM dresses! The bill levkoff 430! I ordered them from rk bridal and saved a shyt ton - they were $205 and I got them SHIPPED for $125. I called pearls place, and then rk bridal beat their price by 5%
Thought I'd pass on the super savings.
2) I saw your yarn CP idea... my cousin runs an etsy shop - knitting - she she uses these delicious hand-spun yarns that she buys off other etsy sellers. They sound like the perfect style yard for what you are looking for. If there is a yarn style you like I will ask her what etsy seller she bought it off so you can order it if you wanted to.http://www.etsy.com/shop/angelbeez
