Something supposedly restful that's now a source of tension

Get it? Tension?
Anyway, I have to make a longish trip next week involving flying on Delta. Yuck. So, I decided I should start something really boring and easy that will make for nice "in transit" knitting. Not making a tapestry lion.
So, inspired by the beauty of the Mad Crocheter's sweater she's making with Knit Picks Shine Worsted, I picked Sunflower and have vague plans to make a roll neck pullover out of it.
I do not expect the color to look great on me, but it's bright and sunny and I like it. One of the nice things about getting older is I just don't feel the pressing need to wear black/grey/navy/army green EVERY DAY anymore. Those dark colors just make the gray hairs pop anyway.
I'll take pictures when I start.
The Mad Crocheter has promised to take a picture of her SW sweater, but the real beauty of the thing is the way it feels, and that doesn't photograph. But the incredible regularity of her stitch work does, so here's hoping she'll load some . . .
Why the tension? The order claims it will arrive the 28th. Which is the day I'll be on the plane. Can everyone please think speedy-yarn-shipping thoughts?????
