Firstly and most importantly, thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the wonderful supportive comments on Dr. G's Memory Vest. I was truly moved by how many of you have been through the same, or very similar circumstances with loved ones. Clearly more research on both Dementia and Alzheimer's is desperately needed. My apologies to those of you who's comments I haven't responded to personally. It is my intention to. Life and the kids activities have gotten in the way.
I hope to have Dr. G's Memory Vest ready by the middle of the month. For now though, socks.
It has been a whirlwind of designing around here lately. Along with Dr. G's Vest, I have been working on two new sock designs for the Plucky Knitter. Her yarns are beautiful. Do you see any pooling? I think not. That is not due to my design genius. Oh no, it is all Sarah and her way with the dyes. Add to this Sarah's way with color, quite exquisite in my humble opinion, and top it all off with the fact that she uses amazing base yarns. The sock on the left is single ply merino that reminds me of a sock weight Malabrigo. One would think this would knit into a fragile fabric, but rather it is substantial with a lovely soft halo. It makes a luxurious pair of socks. The sock on the right is 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere. Need I say more? Heavenly.
Both of the designs should be ready by early next week. They will be available here and in The Plucky Knitter's Etsy shop.
Now I must get back to knitting Dr. G's, oh and get myself to the dentist. *grumble*
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend to those of you in the US. (And to those outside the US have a great weekend too!)
