Pink Ribbons Socks and Update

Needles: 2.5mm dpn
Yarn: Koigu KPPM 2231
Pattern: Pink Ribbon

Note: Here's an update. After reading this article in the New York Times, Doubt About Pathology Opinions for Early Breast Cancer, I requested a second opinion pathology report, this one from a breast pathologist even though I was diagnosed, not with cancer, but with a non-malignant condition which is considered to be an increased risk of later breast cancer development. This diagnosis would require that I undergo an open surgical biopsy to make sure they hadn't missed cancer and would forever label me as high risk. The second pathology report stated that I did not have this condition. I now have an appointment with a breast surgeon for the 17th to determine what the next steps are.
