Stitching Red

I came across this pattern on ravelry recently and it was love at first sight . Having just done a stash cleanup I knew that I had the perfect yarn for it, so I quickly bought the pattern and cast on immediately . I love, love , love these socks ! One is completed and I'm almost half done with the cuff on the second sock .

An added bonus is that part of the sales of the pattern go to the Stitch Red campaign that is putting the focus on heart disease which is the number one killer of women in the United States . After doing a quick search , apparently the same is true for Canadian women . This is something close to my heart , pun intended , I have high blood pressure and have made some lifestyle changes , lost some weight , exercise more , but I'm still not at the point that I can do without the pills .  My goal to be keep plugging away at it till the rest of the weight comes off . I'd like to be around to enjoy my grand kids for as long as possible .

Speaking of which , here's a recent photo of Mason . He was recently diagnosed with having a condition commonly known as lazy eye . He has a followup with the ophthalmologist in a couple of months to see if there is any improvement  in his vision . He's been pretty good at keeping them on , for the most part . To me he's just adorable , with or without the glasses , but he sure looks more little boy than baby with them .

That's it for today , till next time ...have a great week !
