Skulduggery

You may have noticed the strange silence on the knitting front lately. That's because I've been feverishly working on this. You can read all about the story of its inception here.

And for those of you to whom the title of the linked-to blog is a mystery, I offer this excerpt from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which Sarah obviously needs to read:

'But Mr Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine months.'

'Oh yes, well as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them had you? I mean like actually telling anybody or anything.'

'But the plans were on display ...'

'On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.'

'That's the display department.'

'With a torch.'

'Ah, well the lights had probably gone.'

'So had the stairs.'

'But look, you found the notice didn't you?'

'Yes,' said Arthur, 'yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying Beware of the Leopard.'

Oh, how lovely! What a wonderful, loving group you all are! [sniffle]

Now I'm going to go back through the archives of the Lavatory and look at all the individual squares.

BTW, a similar project, led by Cecilia, was what taught me to knit.
