Despite the ill household, we've been able to decorate the house for the holidays and I have made some slow progress on my mother's socks. I should have them ready in time for Christmas, but I tell you, the 9" up the calf, 10 1/2" foot is taking some time.
I have also knit up a scarf for the Red Scarf Project.
Pattern: Ann Budd's Basket Weave Scarf from Interweave Knits Staff Favorites, Fall 2004
Yarn: From Sterling Brook Farm, found at the Waterbury Farmer's Market, VT
Needles: Peace Fleece Russian Hand Painted Needles US size 6
Remember: Scarves are due in January! Knitters in the Richmond Area can drop their scarf contributions at the Richmond Waldorf School between January 2nd and 16th. Don't worry, I'll post more reminders!
I read in the paper today that Rosie Lee Tompkins died on December 1st. I am not a quilter, but I do admire quilts. I believe Ms. Tompkins' quilts were pure genius. She will be missed.
