I finished editing the draft:

It doesn't mention the shirt yet, but we could add it if finish picking 

As for the color... I think I'd go with the charcoal option: Design 
. Swatch for the color: (search for 
"charcoal"). But I find color choices tiring.

But we don't necessarily have to make that a show-stopper for this update; 
we could just do a separate T-shirt note right after the December 
newsletter. I guess it does mean that it wouldn't, by default, go out to 
"announce", but we could decide to send a separate fundraising request to 
the "announce" list in a week, say.

My vote would be, ship the December newsletter by mid-Saturday at the 
latest, and if T-shirt stuff is decided by then, then great; otherwise, 
get a handle on T-shirt stuff after the newsletter post goes out.
