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.

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.

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.

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