Socks: Pairs 22 and 23

I can't believe it but I haven't posted since the middle of July.  The extreme heat in July caused us to spend a few days in a Motel.  My daughter's asthma and heart problems said thank you as did my arthritis.  The dog was pretty pleased as well and felt at home as you can see from the photo. 

During that time I did get two pairs of socks finished, one with ONLine Wellness II and one from an in-house hand-dyed ball of commercial sock yarn. As  always, these socks are for the orphanages in Kazakhstan.  If you have some time and the inkling to knit something for these kids go and visit the Mitten's for Akkhol group on Yahoo.  All kinds of knitted articles  are needed.

Knit on merrily!


  1. What a cute dog, looking at you as if all is right with the world.

    As always, I love your socks.

  2. Love the socks, too!

    Is the dog a Toy Fox Terrier or a Rat Terrier? (I have a TFT and he looks similar to your dog.)
