This is the project that I'm going to be taking with me this week on my somewhat unexpected trip to South Carolina. A very close friend of our family is in her final days and we are going to be with her so that we can say our goodbyes and hopefully make her last bit of time here a little bit more cheerful.
The socks are for Pete and this is the third time that I have started them. This heavyweight Socks that Rock is throwing me for a loop! I ended up knitting them with US 4's and did 48 stitches around. Needles to say, they are knitting up quickly at that gauge.
I'll be back late next week, but may not be posting until the following week, depending on my level of physical and emotional exhaustion. Please send my friend good thoughts for a peaceful and graceful exit from this world -- she was a crafter at one time too. . .
