Catching up is hard to do! GEEEEEZ Louise! Where to begin?! Where did I leave off?! Hmmm... I think it was somewhere after my daughter's 6 weeks of mono, followed by my son's 3 months of mono, while he battled impacted sinuses, along with my son's acute appendicitis and appendectomy, in anticipation of my son's upcoming hernia surgery on the 26th, followed by my dog, Spike's kneecap surgery (luxating patella). Oh yeah ~ and did I mention I knit 3/4 of the above "juliet" only to come to the realization (which I had a sneaky suspicion of all along) that it was to friggin small?! So, I riiiiiiipppppppped that baby out and cast her on again! Thank God my LYS was savvy enough to come up with another 3 skeins of the same dye lot from their distributor :) Needless to say I"M BACK!!
