For those UK-based readers who are fans of 'Autumnwatch', I'd love to be able to present this blog post in the style of a conversation between Bill Oddie, Kate Humble and Simon King. Sadly, my attempts at conversational caricature have proved somewhat feeble, and besides, I'm supposed to be working right now, so please feel free to imagine an exchange of dubious wit, good natured teasing and enthusiasm about the deer rut.
The important news, though, is that the shawl progress has picked up a bit since last week's feeble showing:
A slow start early in the week can be attributed to the fact that I thought I was going to be attending a craft fair this Saturday. Sadly, or perhaps fortunately, that has fallen through, and for the rest of the week, I've been performing more-or-less parallel to the target line. (Last night's poor showing is due to a sudden and desperate need to clean out the fridge. It's best not to ask.)
Clearly, though, I have a lot of ground to make up before the early-December deadline. Can I catch up by this time next week? Will there be an actual progress photo? (All my efforts this week are of the 'blue ramen blob' variety). Stay tuned to find out!
