light past

Sometimes our fate
resembles a fruit tree in winter.
Who would think that those branches
would turn green again and blossom,
but we hope it,
we know it.
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Dapple socks are slowly coming's secret knitting time, so everything else gets the back burner for a wee while, including these lovelies.

The green is so fresh and lively...a perfect curative for the gray, gray, gray days we've been having.

Grey is right! Although we had a very brief respite of white. Nice long did it take to get your order from AU?

Oh my! I love all your socks, but these - these I am seriously coveting! That yarn! Those colors! Love!

Such pretty colors and perfect words to go with. I'm just crawling out of the holiday hole I had dug myself into, so refreshing to come see what you've been up to.

Beautiful socks. There's nothing like a good looking heel flap.

That sock is seriously gorgeous! What fun, fun yarn, and I love how the varying textures change it up a bit. Lovely!

I'm also in a secret knitting time. It's tough to stay quiet ;-) This sock yarn is gorgeous! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

The colors in this sock are so warm - it's an unusual combination and it works.

I really like that poem. So truthful.
