I did it! While it's a measly 55 square inches closer to being done, just the fact that I am started back is huge. Now that it is getting dark so early -- and light so late -- I am really going to have to find some time to colour plan ahead a bit, since most of my hooking is done after hours.
P.S. While it's been many more weeks since I started hooking this rug and tracking it's progress, I am only keeping track by the active weeks -- not counting those weeks where I consciously took a break. I do count the weeks where I hook very little -- and sometimes none at all -- in the middle of a hooking spell.
