Prime Time - April
For Mother's Day I cast on Spring Socks from the Six Sox Knitalong. These were delivered this week to my mother-in-law in Boise while my husband was visiting.
The yarn is CPY Panda Wool in the color Periwinkle. In real life it is much more purple - a pretty twist of purple and light gray.
Socks for own dear mom, a pair from Cookie A, remain unfinished. Mom was on her final day of a lovely trip to San Francisco with my brother and nephew when she suffered a head injury from a fall in her hotel room and passed away the following day with my father and sister at her side. I was able to bury myself in the frenzy of Sock Madness while waiting to hear news and then as I began to figure out how to deal with my grief. These are the SM Round 3 socks finished on my first birthday without my beautiful mom.
