As some of you may recall, last spring I had 2 hip replacement surgeries and spent a significant amount of time rehabbing in a local nursing home. My sister worked at the nursing home and helped to cheer me up, watch out for my best interests and wouldn't let me get away with anything. She also spent a lot of her own money in making me feel as comfortable as possible.
When I would offer to pay her back she would just shrug it off, but eventually, she told me that I could make her a pair of socks as repayment. Well, I have been slow about it, but I have finally finished a pair of socks for her. They are not perfect, but neither am I. They do express my gratitude and love for her. I hope she will like them.
The pattern is Be Mine, designed by Melissa Morgan-Oakes. It is published in her book, 2-at-a-time Socks. The yarn is Knit Picks Gloss fingering weight in the Doe colorway. I love this yarn! It is 70% wool/30% silk and 100% lovely.
Now I need to get ready to leave as today is my family's belated Christmas party. I hope you all have a great weekend! Happy Creativity to you all!
