Now they're finished... the Key Stage 2 SATs that is. Anyone in Primary Schools this week has had their life on hold, focused intensively on getting the Year 6 students through this. It's a terrible thing to do to an 11 year old. A while ago the 'average' score goalposts were moved to 80%. Now, it seems that old Gordy has moved the 'average' to 100%. It still doesn't add up...

Nevertheless. Progress on the knitting front:

This is the Mia Shrug in Rialto. Excuse the slightly stunned just-back-from-11-hours-at-work look.

and the back

My new project - Krista from the wonderful Joan McGowan-Michael. Also in Rialto, which is a departure from the cotton specified in the pattern, but I'm really into merino at the moment.

Mia Shrug turned out great and Krista is looking super too -

Are your SAT's like ours?

That's a long terrible day. Eleven hours. The shrug is very beautiful.
