You might think that after such a hiatus I'd be back with at least a pair of socks, if not some sleeves and perhaps a few begun and un-begun-again projects (that is, if you are not a regular reader of these pages). However, I'm here just to stop off quickly, wave, and turn around again. In the past two weeks I've met more new people than I ever have before in my life and tried to remember most of their names, started medical school and with it a week's-worth of lectures which are already over my head and demand extra reading, begun coxing and learning not only the commands and how to steer but also the extremely convoluted route from the tube station to the boat house, and - and - a million other things, but not amongst them a stitch.
Which is slightly alarming, considering October marches ever onward and I haven't even washed the swatch to see if I need new needles for a sweater for someone's birthday at the end of November.... Hmm. Come to think of it, I'd better get a move on if I want it finished by Christmas.
I'll keep you posted, but don't hold your breath - unless I've just crashed our boat into a bridge and you're having to swim to safety. Terrifying thought. Keep your needles crossed for me!
