My Excuse for Lack of Sock Progress




Dear Sock Pal,
Sorry I haven't been making a lot of progress on your socks lately - I've been busy working on the comfort blanket project for the VT tragedy. We have received 6100 squares so far (I made about 20). Unfortunately, about 1/3 of the squares came without the ends woven in, so I've been really busy with that. Yesterday we had a "joining day" and got 19 blankets sewn together so 41 to go. Here is a picture of one of your socks in front of a completed blanket - I'm almost to the toe. Emmie

No worries, there's still plenty of time! Your sock looks great, btw.

Sock looks great, and so does the blanket - I am sure it will help to ease the pain of a family in need.

You don't need to send them out untill August so don't worry! I've been working on some obligation socks between sock one and sock two... but I'll finish them in time!

The Forest Canopy shawl blocked out a lot. It looked really small when I got it done. I also think I have enough yarn leftover that I could have done another repeat. Finished measurements are 36" wide and 19" long.
