I have been knitting frantically on my sister’s Christmas present since March and along the way I’ve been randomly buying skeins of yarn to finish it. Since dye lot does not matter in this case, I can just order a few skeins at a time, knit away until I run out and place another order. Or I thought this would be a good plan until I realized how few days there are left until I have to get this thing into the mail. I had to place another order for yarn on December 3rd and I figured I’d have it by the 8th which seemed safe, but it didn’t arrive until yesterday. It’s causing me the sort of stress that gives you an eye twitch and the urge to punch people on the street. With all their cheer and holidy shopping done and what not…oh no! I’m not bitter! I will have this project DONE and in the mail by December 15th so help me! (The package has to travel from Illinois to Texas and I like to ere on the side of caution.) I hope all your projects are going better than mine! Please eat some chocolate for me and keep your fingers crossed that I come out of this holiday season with my sanity (whatever that is) mostly in tact!
