The Final Laps

nona's feeling like an Indi-500 race car driver with 493 laps down, 7 to go.  I've been circling round and round on my Tivoli T-Shirt and have just realized that I'm down to the last few laps.  Anticipating the finish line has me anxiously speculating about the future -- How will the linen fit and feel once it's been washed and dried?  How accurate were my shrinkage calculations?  Is it too good to be true that there are no -- not a one -- seams to sew?  The anticipation may just keep me up late tonight. 

nona's nearing the finish line, only 7 laps to go!

Linen yarn shrinks? Wow, thanks for the tip. I have some cotton linen blend so I will remember this important little detail. Looking foward to Tivoli unveiling.
