61 days

Only 61 days until Christmas...and that doesn't include shipping time. So, do I work diligently on the remainder of my unfinished knitted gifts? Oh no. That would be logical. Instead, what do I do?

I give the big ol' middle finger to logic, order 5 skeins of handpainted cashmere (Mont Blanc in the Sawyer colorway) from Axelle at A. L. de Sauveterre and cast on for another Clapotis as soon as it arrived. The yarn is just to wonderful not to knit with. However, what it is bringing me is a false calm, soon to be overridden by [temporarily stifled] holiday panic. But for now, oh cashmere, how I love thee!
