Socks and socks

Janet's socks are done and ready to mail tomorrow. Now I have a pair for Dad on the needles.

I also have a pair that my friend is working on. Since last August, her health has not been good and she was in the hospital for a few days. At that time she said to me, "If I die, you have to finish the socks I'm working on so they can be given to my children. " I told her to get well and we'd knit the socks together.

Her health hasn't really recovered since then, but she's no longer in the hospital. Now she's in a long-term health-care facility within walking distance from me, so I usually see her several times a week. Last week one of her children got one of the pairs of socks in progress from her house and gave them to me to bring when I visit her. I always take knitting of my own to work on, and once or twice my friend has asked to knit a bit on my work. She seems to enjoy it and I'm happy to see her with yarn and needles in her hands again. Yesterday I took her sock knitting to her and she held it, but did not wish to knit. When I got ready to leave, she asked me to take it with me, and bring it again the next time I came to see her. In the meantime, she asked if I'd knit some on it.

So I'll knit maybe one round each day and we'll see how it goes.
