I finished the first of my Leyburn Socks yesterday evening, just before we closed the shop. This is remarkable, since all my other socks on needles are languishing. This pattern knits up quite quickly. I'm working over 72 stitches, cuff down. It fits beautifully and I love it. The second one is cast on and growing. I'll have new socks for Sock Camp this year!
Also, Alison appears to be doing better. She even blogged herself a couple of times, so hope is renewed. Your continued thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
