I will have to also admit defeat on the May Day socks. I was on quite a roll with the second sock last week and thought I'd be able to do it, but these past 5 or 6 days have been so crazy that I have not had any time to knit at all save for one or two rounds on the train the other day. This pattern has been a lot of fun to knit and I will definitely finish the second sock eventually, just not in time for the end of this month. I will try and take a picture soon and either post it here or to my blog.
Anni, I am sorry to hear about your grandfather. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
