Some progress

Didn't get anything knitted on the Olympic shawl on Sunday, but managed several rows at work at lunchtime on Monday - here she is at the moment.

The straight needles are doing fine so far but will have to get some boiling water onto the circs which were writhing around like baby snakes on Friday night. Theoretically, I'm halfway there (4 pattern repeats). Using the shawl calculator (this link downloads an Excel file...), I'm 25% there; which is better than I thought... But I've only used 30g of the 225g of yarn, so I'll have to keep an eye on that and maybe I can get a couple more repeats than the photo I'm working from shows...
