The Jaywalkers...they are done.
I must say, there is nothing more comforting than coming home after a grueling day of hospitals, "arrangements," tense family members and generally sad events -- than slipping into a pair of soft, handknit socks and fresh new jammies.
This is exactly what I did. And it was the most self-comforting thing I could've done at that moment.
They fit perfectly. They are very soft. The colors are fabulous and I enjoyed the pattern thoroughly. This will definitely be in my "sock repertoire" for future socks to come.
And, take note at how closely they match:
Not perfect, but close!
What can I say? I tried, people.
I'm too tired to put up the FO details right this minute. I'll update sometime this week.
Before I sign off, I just wanted to thank all of you for your genuinely kind sentiments during this tough time. It really means a lot. Seriously.
I was very touched at all the expressions of condolences and individual emails which were sent, filled with stories of your own Grannies and your own experiences.
Knitters really are the best. :-)
