Back to the Fischu (annual insanity strikes)
Then again, who am I kidding. This is where the rows get really long and sloggy. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, madness has taken hold. The company holiday party is on Monday Dec. 19th this year, and I'm convinced a Fiddlesticks Knitting Peacock Shawl in admiral blue Zephyr is exactly what my outfit needs to make it complete. The fact that I don't have one already made is beside the point. The fact that I'm desparately hoping UPS will bring my admiral blue Zephyr ordered last Friday noon before tomorrow night when I head out to base myself at Himself's house with all that lovely long weekend knitting time is beside the point. The fact that I have an admiral blue Zephyr Fiber Trend's Sheep Shawl already made is merely a fall-back possibility, because it's nice but not dramatically awwww-inspiring. The holiday party is not for cozy.
