Long time, no see

Howdy MWK....yeah, haven't been around. Thesis handed in over a month ago....still haven't heard anything yet. I hope that's a good sign..since I have to get the thumbs up for the thesis in order to be able to move on to the exams that's coming up in September. So, you can guess it: I'm studying.

But I'm not here to talk about my studies....but about knitting...or lack thereof.....

...well, not really. I've a spurt of Cast-On-Itis for the past couple of weeks. It's not a bad bout though, because I cast-on for only two projects, specs and pics to follow at the end of this post.

Hope you're all well...especially those in CA. :-)

Take care!
