What a treat to listen to Franklin! Thanks for bringing him on :-)

OMG -- thank you for the Franklin Habit section -- I was really laughing hard. How true -- it IS a strange time, sometimes. The best part really are the lefotvers! I ditched the sweet potatoes and marshmallows as soon as I got married and we have found another recipe we like LOL
http://tinyurl.com/86jew89 (not sure you can get the Cracklin Oat Bran cereal your way though) BUT SO TRUE about family foibles. We had the blow out of all blow out once ... among the grandparents!! Years of stuff that had been "shoved under the rug" came out between two women ... wow. Shows you not to mix too much food, alcohol and Rx meds LOL. We still talk about it. :) thanks again for the contest, too!

Congratulations on finishing the Juno Regina! I started one four years ago, it hibernated three years, only to be frogged.

Started a SECOND one this past April and finished it (!) in August in order to give as a gift to my new sister in law when she was married that month.

It's a beautiful design, I can't figure out why it takes so long to finish one, especially for experienced shawl and lace knitters! Here's a link to mine on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/LooseKnit/juno-regina-stole--wrap
