I've been doing a postcard swop via Ravelry. Two postcards of London (I couldn't find any Olympics ones, so just got London touristy ones) winged their way very quickly over the Atlantic to the US and Canada. And I've just received one myself from Long Island, which looks very summery. And it's from another librarian!
I got the Essential Cardigan finished. And I'm rather pleased with it. Not only does it fit (!), it's very comfy to wear, the yarn feels lovely and soft and it's actually smart enough to wear for work - which was my original aim. Now that I've blocked it it's ended up longer, with longer sleeves - I'd been aiming for 3/4 length, which is pretty much what's happened.
