Socks Of Sorrow
Yarn: Socks That Rock
Mods: Short Row heel and toe (DANGER, DANGER, WILL ROBINSON!)
After my long absence I am back and hope to resume blogging. This has been, unquestionably the worst summer of my life. I'm glad it's come to a close, and hopefully I'll see the BEST holiday season of my life because my family and I definately need it.
My Mom was diagnosed with Angioimmunoblastic T-cell Lymphoma. She is on Chemo (Chop)and is physically doing ok. We are currently in a depression cycle of the illness process. Outlook for going into remission is gaurdedly optimistic.
My Debut back are my "SOCKS OF SORROW" I call them that for many reasons: they were knit during MANY family disagreements including tears and name calling, they were knit while in the hospital, they were knit while I was really too tired to knit and had to be frogged 3 times in an hour. Not surprisingly they have an issue, the short row feature of the socks do not work well with the jawalker stitch pattern....there is NO stretch. I was the only one who could battle them on my feet so they become mine, flaws and all.
I want to get back in to the swing of things and reconnect with my "peeps" so if you read this please let me know that you are out there.
I think it is significant that I (totally randomly)chose Friday the 13th for a comeback...start the ominous music.
