twice beauty

Fin. Finished. Completed. Done!!

Beautiful pink spirals...

...off...

...or on...I love these socks!

from the top of their twisted rib

to the the curve of their heel...

from the gusset to the tips of their kitchenered toes...

I love these socks!! The pattern, the color, the fit...perfect!!

I'm a seriously happy camper!!

Now that you know what's up with me...how're you? Did you have a good weekend?

What makes you a happy camper?

Beauty is twice beauty
and what is good is doubly good
when it is a matter of two socks
made of wool in winter.
~Pablo Neruda from
Ode to my Socks

These are absolutely gorgeous, especially around that gusset! I am a happy camper right now because I'm spending time with family in California :)

Have a Happy Holiday, and Best Wishes for a Beautiful New Year. Thanks for all the beauty,chuckles, and great camera advice and inspiration you've sent me this past year.

Beautiful! I really want to knit these, and I don't say that about socks very often! Now to pick the perfect yarn to knit these up.

Seeing these in person the other day really inspired me to want to knit a pair for myself! Gorgeous inspiration for the holiday!
