Yarn Arrival!

My KintPicks order came in.
Normally I would be all excited, unable to contain myself, but this yarn has been labeled and put up for Christmas knitting. Now what the hell fun is that?

KnitPicks Telemark for the Flames Cap for Brian, who gets the black,red and orange, and Kevin, with the blues. Also Christmas knitting.

I might start the flames caps after the Not So Blue tank is done, I could whip out a couple of those in a week, and be that much closer for Christmas time!
