For the last 6 years, a wonderful lady has been teaching my oldest daughter how to dance in the Highland discipline. She’s meant a whole lot to us, and she’s had to leave our studio because she’s had some really exciting developments with her own family. Of course, a woman who has the patience to teach your daughter how to perfect the Fling and the Seann Triubhas is worthy of a pair of hand knit socks. Were I a faster knitter, she’d have ended up with a week’s worth.
I made her the Tristan & Isolde socks from Janel Laidman’s book “The Enchanted Sole”, as they were the most reminiscent of highland dance shoes. I only wish I could have made her a millionty pair, she’s meant that much to us.
Here’s to goodbyes and new beginnings, Miss Sally.
