Beautiful work, I also can't imagine working with those small needles; you must be very dexterous.

I am sure we have all lost

I am sure we have all lost someone special to cancer and to see you do something to combat it really makes me feel good, Randy. The socks are beautiful!! Whenever I work on socks, I think of you and your little circular. My poor hands cramp up at the thought of it. Glad you have conquered it.

Nice's incredibly

Nice's incredibly satisfying to be able to use a skill like knitting to both memorialize a loved one and to help raise money to prevent some other family's sorrow. Your socks came out beautifully.

Beautiful socks, Randy.

Beautiful socks, Randy. Sorry to learn of your sister. Family history of the BIG C in our family too. Mainly breast, but I sympathize. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
