    No, not the stinky ones on your feet :eek:

    The Sock it 2 ME/CFS awareness project is now accepting socks, thanks to all the
    great people that made it happen.

    Since all of us are grateful to have so many friends on this forum who give us
    support and do advocacy, this is a great way to show appreciation and raise
    awareness.

    Please consider making a sock in honor of a friend. Don't have friends? Well
    just make one for yourself ;)

    I know most of us don't have much extra energy for projects, but you can
    always order socks online and just personalize them with a little decoration.
    I bought socks and asked a friend to do some embroidering on them and
    sew little star buttons on.


    Please visit: http://www.sockit2mecfs.org/
    and show your socks off here to get others inspired to send socks for the
    project.

    Here are the ones I sent out for the project:

    Would some one kindly tell me how to post large pictures instead of thumbnails using
    my own files and not an internet link?

    Thanks

    Robin saved the day again, like so many times and that is why I made a sock for her.

    Come on everyone, we can do just as good of a job as the people that made the AIDS quilt!

    I'm half-able----I'm going to get "sock blanks" from talkingfox because I can't make one myself, but my kids and I can do the decorating part... I think! So remember, that's an option too.

    Spindrift, I love those beautiful socks with their tiny forget-ME-not details.

    You've been a great cheerleader for the project though, Tammie, and input from you and Starry and DB and tina and everyone has helped keep me going when I got tired or started to doubt if it could really happen. And yours will probably be among the first socks received!

    I have this design in my mind for my sock and am not sure how it will go when I try to actually make it. We'll see!

    Yay Creek! :Retro smile:

    I'm thinking of using one of my soccer socks. I'll probably never play soccer again.

    mine's nearly there - I am such a light-weight these days, a little job like this has to be divided up into bite-size pieces :O

    But it's fun to do! I'll upload a piccy when it's done :Retro smile:

    Man, I used to be able to make ten like that in a day, maybe not all the painting though, it's my trade.
