What a week!
The anchor has sunk.
It is with great sorrow that I write this post. On Wednesday, March 12, in the early morning hours, FIL passed peacefully away. He is in a better place now.
We, DH and myself, went to visit him on Tuesday afternoon where he was not looking well at all. He was not very responsive until just before we were leaving. He managed to flick DH's hand when he touched his and he moved his eyebrows up and down when I kissed him good bye. We had a quiet drive home. Early Wednesday morning we got the call...and that was when it all began. The arrangements, the people, the stories, the tears, the laughter...
I didn't knit too much this past week, however I did manage to finish the Maizy Lace Socks. They took the longest of all my socks so far to complete. Under the circumstances it is understandable. But I did miss knitting as I find it to be my release.
The Maizy Lace socks turned out to be perfect. They fit properly and are very soft and comfy. They were knit using Seacoast Handpainted Superwash Sock yarn in the Desert Rose colourway.
