The next few days are going to be so packed I don't know if I'll even be able to post at all – and somehow I can't seem to put really interesting words to monitor today either. The happy news is that I got the ginormous statistical report done for the state yesterday. Thinking it was due on December 1st I spent Monday and Wednesday with my nose to keyboard. There were some other things with 12/1 deadlines but I couldn't remember what they were so I called the wise goddess in Richmond and asked ... and she said the statistical report was not due till 12/17!!
You can't imagine how delighted I feel to have it done early! Of course, I could have done it the first of November ... nothing changed between then and yesterday except that I actually sat down and did the job. Something like that is such a temptation to put off – sort of like income taxes.

I just saw the cutest shawl on J's blog – knit from Le Gran mohair – Classic Elite's classic. It reminded me that I have some in the bottom of my stash. In fact, I have rather a lot of mohair, now I think of it – some of that silk/mohair blend from K1C2. Hmmm. Thoughts. Thoughts.
But mohair dreams can wait. I am knitting the foot of the last Christmas sock at the moment and after that I plan to rip out the gauge swatch for the Merino Stretch sweater and cast on a smaller color swatch. I'm still pawing through the stash looking for a 4th color. Something eye-popping but coordinating. Not the vivid teal blue wool/mohair blend from Brown Sheep.

Lawsee – I'm too boring for words today. See you when the brain can concentrate again. Ta.
