I did promise pics of the new starts, and so I will take a few moments now to post them. While I did finish Rick's sweater, I wore it to work the other day, and since it was almost 70degrees when I left, I ended up forgetting it. So I will have to pick it up when I return. The buttons Rick made are really lovely, and I think will really complement the sweater nicely.
The first ones are my Clessidra Stockings. They are coming along well. Although the Wildfoote is very splitty, and with the cables it can be a bit annoying. The second one, the Jawoll socks are Rick's 2nd pair of socks called Blueberry Waffle socks. They are a pretty mindless knit.
On a more somber note, Rick and I will be leaving tomorrow morning for Pennsylvania, as my Grandmother (who is 96) is soon to pass from this life. Unfortunately it has been long, and slow, and very lingering - my Mother is exhausted, and needs some comforting. So we will go and stay with them for the next few days and that way I can help out when the time arrives. It will be a blessing for her when she goes and this has been a long time coming.
By the time I return, I will have had 2 8hr car rides and much time in between, so there should be some real progress to see on my socks and my Diamond Pullover.
Keep us in your thoughts through the coming few days. I am sure it will be quite exhausting.
