Introducing myself

Hi everyone,

I just posted the this KAL at my blogsite ( and purchased 2 skeins of Claudia's Handpainted in pink posy. I once had some STR med weight in "Hot Flash", but gifted it away, so I hope I am able to get more of it in lightweight.

Not sure when I will start these, but it will be either the Claudia's or STR yarns! Maybe I can find some other STR in my stash that are a color that might work.

I *do* love sock knitting, but I also just lost a very dear friend of mine to breast cancer 3 weeks ago to this day. She just turned 49 on June 30 and was diagnosed when I first met her, at the age of 35. By the time she passed on, the cancer had spread to her brain, lungs and bone. So I will knit these socks to honor her and her memory.

Thanks for being so open about your personal reasons for joining the fight against breast cancer. I'll keep you and your friend in mind as I walk those 60-km. I'm sure she'll be hovering over my shoulder when I get tired.
