New Socks and Julie Update

Well, the entrelac socks are toast for now. I knit the entire cuff and leg was having trouble getting it over the heel. I still love the entrelac, but I'll have to revisit it at a later date. For now, I started another pair.

The yarn is Cherry Tree Hill in Spanish Moss.

I've just finished Chart 7 (Edit: Darn it. I'm actually just starting Chart 7, having just finished Chart 6. Trying to get ahead of myself.) of Hidcote:

Not too much further now. Still difficult getting the color.

We got Julie's lab reports. The tumor was cancerous, 1-4 on an aggressiveness scale of 1-10. We're hoping they got it all with the surgery. The vet wants to do a lung x-ray in six months and says if it's clear and no lumps, she should be okay. She got her stitches out and for now, everything's looking okay.

New sock? Gorgeous. Hidcote? Glorious? Julie? Oh poor baby. Give her lots of hugs from her Aunty Opal. Kisses too. The news does sound somewhat optimistic though. I'm thinking the vet got it all out. That's what I'm thinking.

Hidcote is gorgeous. Julie's news, while not perfect, is at least encouraging.

Sorry about the entrelac socks...my very first pair a few years ago went straight and permanently to the frog pond too!
I love the CTH tho, spanish moss is my favorite colorway!
Glad to hear that Julie is good right now and we'll all think positive for the months to come!

Thanks for the update on Julie. Hoping for the best from here. Jaz sends a little woof and a play stance for when she's feeling better and up to it. I send Good vibes and some Ear Scritchies.

Beautiful sock yarn. They look very cheery for you. Entralac socks sound interesting but formidable.

The new sock looks great. I have some CTH in the stash just waiting to be knit up into some socks. Hidcote is beautiful!! Wishing Julie well. I think it's a good sign if the vet doesn't want to do anything else until several months down the road. Fingers are crossed!

Sending good wishes Julie's way - hope they got it all and she continues to do well. Hidcote is gorgeous. I like the solid looking areas - can't wait to see it finished and blocked.

Poor sweet Juliette. I'm confident she will be cancer free at her next appointment. Love is an amazing healer.

Hidcote is lovely!

I had to rip my entrelac sock a couple of times to get it to fit over my fat foot! :)

The shawl is coming along so beautifully! The sock looks good, too. Nice colors.

The news on Julie does sound pretty encouraging. I hope the vet got it all out. At such an early stage, it probably hadn't yet metastisized.

I have knit once with the CTH yarn and found that it "rewound" itself as I knit it... do you have that problem? I have another skein, and I want the yarn to stay as is when I knit it...
