Laura Socks

Two patterns, one pair.  Sorry that the pictures are a little dull.  The ziggity-zaggity sock is a Jaywalker by Grumperina and the one with the short row puffs is called Cloud Sock.  It's from the Six Sox Knitalong group.  You can look up all of those things on Ravelry.  The red yarn is KnitPicks Essential and the grey-white-black is Lang Jawohl.
     They took about 3 years.  The first one was a doozy.  That was the Cloud Sock.  I started it in 2009.  The second one took less than a week last month. 
     Right now, even as we "speak", Laura is undergoing breast cancer surgery in California.  The least I can do is try to pamper her feet.

Not Knitting

    Elizabeth Sable and I got together in Madison yesterday and made a couple of quilt tops for Project Linus.  The rainbow sections we cut from a project I had begun some time in the 1990's, and actually, the background fabric was part of the project.  Long story.  Apparently, Project Linus will take the tops and assemble them into quilts.  Bonus!!  Now they'll get done. 

    There is a link to Elizabeth's blog on the right.  She has published a gorgeous entrelac pattern in a book that just came out.  There is a promotion going on.  Check it out.
