FO: Wallace Socks by Rachel Coopey

 Stats:
Pattern:  Wallace socks by Rachel Coopey, size large
Yarn:  Toddy from the Yarn Yard (75% merino, 25% nylon)
These are probably the brightest socks my darling FL has ever owned.
He laughed out loud in the waiting room today when I finished kitchenering the second toe and presented them to him, there and then. 
That was a lovely reaction, particularly given the circumstances of our wait.
It was his regular monthly appointment.  But we knew he was in trouble, without seeing a doctor.  It was the Italian lady doctor today.  We like her a lot.  She gave him a thorough examination.  There was no Freelite test taken last month, so we don't know what is happening with his Myeloma, but he is significantly weaker than a month ago.  The doctor was concerned enough to give him a holiday from chemo.  He has to go back in a week for more tests.  She sent his Freelite off today, and ordered more blood tests.  Depending on what they tell her, he might need a bone marrow test next week.  Lovely.
Meanwhile, we just have to keep on keeping on.
With added red socks!

I'm sorry he feels terrible. He is so handsome and the socks look wonderful with that amazing shirt he's wearing.

Hugs from across the sea.

Hate to hear that FL is feeling bad. Am glad the socks brought some joy. Great photo shot of FL wearing the socks...and they are truly red indeed. Hugs and well wishes from hubby and I, visiting with his family in California this week. Hope the tests come back with good results.

Are you sure you haven't stolen a model from the new Toast catalogue there Roo? Handsome socks too x

Yay for fluorescent socks! They are really lovely. I'd better not show my other half. He will start on at me about my never having made him anything. His feet are so long it would be like knitting a jumper.

Sorry to hear how bad your FL is feeling. I hope he picks up.

Such awesome red socks should be on prescription if they can have that effect :-)
