Comfort for Karen, Part II






Some of my readers might remember this post from last year when I told of my childhood friend's battle with Lymphoma and the quilt that I made for her. Earlier this year she was given the all clear only to be zapped again with the news a few weeks ago that the cancer has returned. 
I was working on these socks and immediately knew that they would be sent off to Karen as soon as they were finished. I hope they will keep her feet warm as she must endure another rigorous Chemo schedule. I wish I could do more, but living 3000 miles away means all I can do is send thoughtful cards and PRAY like there's no tomorrow.

Some readers have asked where I got my sock blockers. I ordered them from Purrfectly Catchy Designs on Etsy.
