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.

The zigzag socks for Laura are sweet. I have a friend who had surgery for breast cancer about 3 weeks ago. She's doing well, but is facing radiation treatments. I will keep a positive thought for Laura.
For those of us, of limited knitting vocab, please explain "to frog". I am guessing it means to make a heel.
Adore your hats. The close-ups are impressive.
