A slippery slope

So my first international yarn order arrived today! It is two skeins of the Supersport Merino in Violet's Pink Ribbon from... LISA SOUZA! I have heard tell of her marvellous yarn but this puts all stories to shame, shame I say! And the worst part? I. Want. (nay, NEED) MORE! It is soft like all get out and at 375 yards (4 oz.) for $16(US) I am so sold. And of course, the colour is awesome. And no, I'm not a big wearer of pink, but this is for someone else (and that is a secret, shhh), but I get the joy of using the stuff.

How happy is this guy with the yarn? He is my new yarn model and he just makes me so happy! (My brother got him for my mother as a gift, and we might stash him in the garden when the weather clears up, ooh, and my mother wants to give him coloured robes and a gilded bellybutton. Don't ask, this is my family)

I'm sick. (which sucks)
And done gift shopping. (last minute? me? never!)
And unemployed now too. (there are pros and cons)

I ran into a hitch on The Helm, but I'll have it done in a day or two, especially now that I have free (sick) time, and then I will try to post photos and stuff n' such. I've just been too busy and wound up to knit lately, but that should be passing soon.

So Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it, and a belated Happy Hannukah to those (like me) who celebrate it (I got kicked right over by work and busyness). And of course, best wishes for the ass-end of this year, and the coming one as well.
