Back to knitting

Thanks for all your kind thoughts through this difficult time. In honor of my brother, I plan to donate many pairs of socks every year to a worthy charity.

I tried working on Irish Moss last week but didn’t get far before I ripped out what I had done. Needless to say, It is not the best project to work on during a stressful time.

I’m happy to report that despite my initial problems achieving correct tension on my swatches, the width of this front piece seems to be fine.


While Irish Moss languished, I did make progress on Pretty Comfy Socks. The lace pattern is really quite easy to remember thus making it easy to pick up during a few spare moments. The second foot is coming along quickly so hopefully this weekend I can take some pictures to show how to work this short-row heel.

  1. Melinda,
    I’m sorry to hear of your loss,I hope that you celebrate your brother’s memory from the view point that he’s entering another phase in his spiritual journey. Nothing living ever really dies,his soul has a lot to see and do. I’m a cat lover also I lost 2 of my babies last summer to a dog attack it was really hard I felt alot of guilt because I never really let them outside before.There was a deep void I miss them alot the only comfort was Pixie a gift from my cousin and of course knitting.
    Take it one day at a time,
