Three June Socks and Bob was on his feet today!!!!

Here are the three pairs of socks that I made in June mostly while visiting with Bob. I have a single sock made from two more pairs and soon I'll post them. Bob got out of his wheelchair, held a bar and kicked out with each leg six times to each side and then used a walker and WALKED about 40 feet! He was so excited we were both near tears. He did sleep most of the afternoon to rest from this big feat. We are hoping that he can return home at some point with home healthcare. I just had to order more sock yarn (really I have nothing suitable for him) because he is complaining that with all this knitting he has not gotten a pair. He has forgotten the pair he destroyed the Christmas of '05. I am not in the mood to fight with him about!

Fran -

The socks look great! I finally finished sock #1 of pair # 2 (if you don't count that I have to re-do my kitchener stich - but that's a long story) and have started sock #2. I guess no one will call me speedy (unless they are being sarcastic). I'm so happy Bob is making progress. I'm sure you'll both feel so much better with him at home - especially if you can get home health care to help. Thanks for taking the time to let us know how you're getting on.

He's up and walking... WoW! Go Bob! I'm glad to see that everything is going better for him. And look at you, 3 pairs of sox in one month. Those needles must be tired :)
