first FO of the year
These are some 2x2 rib socks for my dad -- he just got a pair at Christmas, but after I heard how cold he's been from his anemia, I had to make him another pair right away. The yarn is Jojoland Melody. It certainly looks lovely knit up, but the lack of nylon content leaves me a little worried about how they'll hold up. The twist on the yarn just isn't as tight as I'd like it. So we'll see ...
In other news on my dad, he had his surgery six days ago and he's home recovering. He's doing really, really well. I'm so thankful that he's had few complications. All really, really good news.
