I am on row 6 of 16 in the final stripe (which is white) of this baby blanket. Last night, hubby commented that it is almost done. I said "Yep and I will have a lot of black left but not much white." I pulled the cone of black out to show how much is left and then pulled out the white ball that was looking deflated. A little too deflated.

I ran to the computer to buy another ball. I found a coupon in my e-mail that gave me free 2-3 day shipping from Paradise Fibers. They are the super fastest shippers and I knew I could count on them. I even got a notice that it shipped today! "I am going to have it before I finish knitting up this ball!" I danced around the house.
Then I saw the weather...we could get anywhere from 5-18 inches of snow tomorrow night. Sigh.
USPS says, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." However, I believe I may be knitting on something else to get me through the storm.
