I took a little hiatus from blogging, but that doesn't mean I haven't been knitting. I received the new Socks that Rock yarn from Blue Moon Fibers called Pease Blossom. The pattern that came with them is called Hippy Crunchy. It is a lace pattern that is difficult but beautiful. The top of the sock is an Icord instead of the usual ribbing which I think makes these socks unique.

In unhappier news, my friend Carol from one of my knitting groups was shot in Seattle a couple of weeks ago at the Jewish Federation Building. She is out of the hospital now and we all wish her a speedy recovery.
