Tall Son had asked for socks. Mind you this is the first time he asked me to knit anything since the 7th grade, when he wanted me to make him a hat. I took too long getting the hat started. He finally made it himself.
But I got right on it with the socks, and finished them last night. Yes there was some procrastination in there. I'm really good at creating deadlines for myself....
Size 13 feet. He said, just pick a yarn that you have a lot of. I had some Opal 6 ply in my stash, in a burnt orange color, and used size 3 (3.25mm) needles. 54 stitches. I used a 2x2 rib for the ribbing, then went to 3x1. They fit him well.
Meanwhile, Alison is gravely ill. I know so because for her to be writing such an incredibly short post, which took a lot of effort, means she is very ill.
I felt moved to send an email to Caremark last night. I mean, what they're doing, that's just not right.
Please send prayers, good thoughts, strength, love, hugs, whatever you got, her way. Thank you.
