Year of Projects - Week 7

Hi..I'm posting really's been a bad day around husband's younger sister died suddenly today....she had been sick, but nothing too drastic...come to find out, she had been bleeding for a couple of days and not told her body shut down husband lost his older brother three years ago....he is now the only one left....I was home all day, waiting to hear from him, but didn't do anything...I wanted to knit, but felt that doing something I felt pleasure from was somehow wrong....

His family is very private....and he and his sister were extremely close....this will be hard for awhile....she and I had a cordial relationship, but weren't close....I feel bad for him...and I am sad for him...and tomorrow I have a funeral for a friend's mom...I did not go to the wake today, obviously....but she was such a wonderful spirit.....

I am going to post my YOP, so that I stay on schedule...but, besides my socks, haven't really done much this past week...

I worked on my Stepping Stones and got to the foot on sock 2...and then noticed this...
See the difference?  There is an instep pattern that I neglected to start on the foot that is different than the leg pattern....I figured it out..I have to drop 11 stitches...that should be okay....

and I started another pair of socks from the same book.....and they are judgment...

Whoa that is quite a list!! So sorry to hear about your sil, I feel the same way in that situation, like its wrong to knit while mourning (only for some time though) initially.
