oh fsm, why didn't i have lisa overnight the frickin' yarn?

innocently, oh so innocently, i ordered anne's gorgeous wing-of-the-moth pattern. then perused lisa souza's yarn for some moho. ah yes, seafoam (the color lisa matched a fabric swatch for me for legend of the shetland seas shawl) will make a lovely moth.

innocently, innocently i email cheryl with my yarn choice. heh heh, she replies, would you like to join our friendly insert devil horns and tail little race. why yes, there will be betting, and prizes (will find something pretty my dears to add to the prize stash).

now i'm wishing i had the yarn overnighted. those other knitters competition are so far ahead. julia has 10 frickin' fir cones finished! beth is motoring along, erin has 7 repeats done. anne wrote the pattern, so she has the homecourt advantage. carole claims she hasn't started yet, we shall see if she has been stealth knitting. i see many sleepless nights ahead...........

wish me luck, and god speed mr.postman!

p.s. funny thing, i bought my son the teeshirt this summer with the morale logo. and some pirate lounging pants.

Scared of you! You knit entire Starmores in the time it takes me to do a pair of socks. (And not fancy socks, either! Plain ones!)

You may be starting a little late, but methinks you've got some powerful knit-mojo happening.

You have a killer reputation, so the moment the yarn arrives, we're all dead meat from my understanding.
Tripping the mailman probably won't do me any good, will it.

I'm betting on you,( sorry girls, she's really fast). I didn't see any Seafoam on the Moho list of colours. A special order??

Yeah...overnight. You needed to sound more desperate, dammit. That would have matched the phonecall in the morning, yarn into the pot, dried in the breeze, finished with a hairdryer and out the same frickin day. Do I win a prize? Yes...your continuing outpouring of love and business, Vanessa., I know :o}

That moth pictures looks just like the yarn...

Hey! That's the most stratigic way I've seen so far to make Lisa S. have to hurry without begging or guilt feelings. LOL! (love ya LisaS)

My money is on you, Flame Fingers.
