heart's ease

I promised photos of Heart's Ease. This is a new sock design that I'm working on, based on a Turkish stitch pattern...I'm thinking a lot about how one's heart is eased, through times of war and illness. It's a hard time in the world, and my heart goes out to all those who are losing their families, those who are refugees, or who are spending their 4th week in a bomb shelter. Just recently I heard of a high school classmate, an acquaintance, who died under missile fire in Lebanon. I found this two color repeat a mesmerizing pattern and something of a comfort as I thought about him and about all the others who are struggling this summer. I'll be posting it for sale on my website when it's done. I've finished one sock, but I need to work through writing the pattern.You may notice that this sock fits very snugly on my foot--it's hard to put socks on in this heat! It's still hot here; 98 today outside. Inside my house, it's somewhere in the 80's.
Sivia asked to see what (It's A) Boucle Wrap looks like--here it is! The free download will be up on my website soon.

I'm very excited to say that I will be away from the computer for a while as I take a vacation, so Heart's Ease might not make it online until I get back. Please leave me a comment if you're a regular reader--it's been so quiet lately! What do you think of Heart's Ease?

I've had my vacation, and it wasn't nearly as bad as I feared :-) Heart's Ease is striking and beautiful in the colours you've chosen. It's such a beautiful world, too, or could be (in all the colours of the rainbow) if humanity wasn't such a, a quarrelsome race.
