It might be my fault....

If you were in England this afternoon it is likely you were one of the millions who decided (or had it decided for them) to abandon the bbq, the stroll in the park or an afternoon of window shopping in favour of 90 stressful minutes watching England v Germany in the World Cup.  Normally, I ignore all things football - but for some reason this World Cup has captured my imagination and I've watched more matches in the past 2 weeks than I had in my whole life previously.

We might as well not have bothered.  England lost.  And at 4 -1 we can't even blame it on the goal the ref robbed from Lampard

But I fear they can blame me.  You see England have never ever won an international match that I've watched. 


I think I might be cursed. 

Or it could be that England were rubbish.

It'll be interesting to see which the papers go with tomorrow morning.

In happier developments check out the latest Wedding Ring Shawl photo.

Do you see that?  Up at the top?  The edging is breaking out! Hurrah!

This is the final stage of the shawl and it's now that I can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  

But it's still a dim distant light - I've done 3 repeats which means there are another 137 to go!

I think they're going with it being your fault - The Sun has already contacted me for quotes.

Hurrah! I was overjoyed at thee first 3 repeats of cast off edging on my Aestlight!

I cannot wait to see it blocked. I suggest you take the week off work and knit!

Wow, you're back to your old tricks. Cranking out amazing lace in record time. I have no idea how you do it.
