It was a long, sad summer. My step-dad got very sick and had to move out of his board and care home. He had colon cancer. Because of his Lewy Body Dementia, we couldn't care for him at home, so we moved him to a skilled nursing facility and he went on hospice. He passed away on September 3rd.
I have a new pattern for sale, South Fork Socks.
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock mediumweight, but any fingering weight yarn will work.
The textured slip stitch pattern looks great in semi-solid or multi-colored hand dyed yarns.
I've continued to train for the Nike Women's Half Marathon with Team in Training. I am trying to raise $1900 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by the end of the month. For the month of October I will donate all proceeds from the sale of my South Fork Socks pattern to the LLS. You can purchase the pattern as a PDF dowload through Paypal using your Paypal account or a credit card.
If you're not into knitting socks, but you'd like to help me reach my goal, you can make a secure, tax-deductible donation here.
