Opal Rose Hips Basketweave Ribbing Socks Done

How much knitting did I get done in Idaho? Two rows!! And I'm not sorry. There were too many better things to do with my family.

Since I've been home, my mind and heart has been processing the death of my children's father and thinking about life in general, how it's worked out for me, and what I might want to do with the rest of mine.

The only knitting I've done in the last week is the mindless knitting of these socks.
