My colorful socks and striped vest

These bright socks were partly knit at a memorial service for long time friend Adrienne, a woman of spirit and commitment, who loves handwork and bright colors. I honor her lifetime of work for peace and justice by donating these socks.

I was inspired by Judy's Jan. 7 vest to try the "Morehouse Striped Vest for Children" pattern, in the largest size, using up several aran weight yarns in my stash. It was a quick knit on circs. I made it longer by one set of stripes in the body and another on the chest, for tummy coverage. It should nicely fit an 8-10 year old.
