It is about to get cold

The forecast for the net few days is very cold.  There will likely be a frost, maybe not a killing frost, but there is going to be a frost.  I can feel it.  

And though I have the perfect sweater for this weather near completion, I must park it till next week.  I have a shawl that I'd like to send to Kiev next week when my son heads over.  


The problem is this is what it looks like today.  It is sitting here on a 2 foot square tile.  It needs to completely fill a 4 x 4 square of tiles.  I have a lot of knitting to do.  The good thing is I don't work till next week Wednesday.  

I figure if I go great guns today and tomorrow I will know.  If I am not past the half way point by the end of a good long day of knitting  tomorrow, there is no possible way I will get done.

(slip into the voice of an old timey soap opera announcer)   

Can she do it?  Will the shawl be complete?  Is there enough time?  Stayed tuned for the next installment of shawl knitting.

Update:  7:15 p.m.  Had a bugger of a day.  The weather change is making both my hands have 0 fingers and 6 thumbs.  Sigh.  I don't think I am going to make it.  I only got about an inch done.

The shawl dilemma is intriguing, but it was your info about your weather that really caught my attention. All day today the weather announcer has been saying that we are about to have the nicest weekend of the summer. Increasingly hotter temps each day. Cloudless skies. So - please keep your weather to yourselves out there. Please.

Hope you are making good progress on the shawl. GD
