Well things are improving slightly (how could they not) after my meltdown yesterday. I located the yarn I needed online here. It was only $4.75 a ball, in stock, and shipping will take 24-48 hours woohoo!
I did get half a sock knit yesterday since I couldn't work on the tank. They are number two of the gift pair I'm doing. That will also free me up to maybe work up a hat when the socks are done before the other yarn arrives.
Since neither Saucey or Zelda can work the camera, here is a picture of some alpacas in lieu of me doing the happy dance.
