spring twist

I believe in pink.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and
I believe in miracles.
~Audrey Hepburn 

Toasty Twist sock pattern by Teresa Fox in STR (???)

winters past

Remember these socks?

It was a two-fer...we captured another set of glamour shots that same day.

The pattern is Toasty Twist in STR 'Currier and Ives'.
LoveLoveLove!! I'm already planning another pair for spring!!

Mods to the original pattern include a linen stitch heel and a double-gusset ala Cristi.

Even socks get pooped...!!!

Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day.

The Sunflower Field socks are coming along, slowly but surely.
I've been juggling a few pairs of socks, but these are now at the top of the queue.

I heart the yarn (Twist & Twine)

I heart the color (Camilla rocks the dye pots!).

And if you'll forgive me for saying so...I'm enjoying the pattern, too...I've spread out the pattern rows with additional rounds of stockinette and now the sock is flying off its needles!

Did you notice? Three (3!!) posts this week...pass the smelling salts!!

Whatcha' got going on this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope you have a blast!! xo

Unless you try to do something
beyond what you have already mastered,
you will never grow.

Looky here!

An FO!!! These lovelies have been finished for sometime now,

but only just had their glamour shots!
Better late than never!

Intrepid Traveler socks (sorry, I don't remember the yarn name other than it's STR) knit for Mr. NK and modeled by him...
...doesn't he work the "runway" well?

Happy Monday!

In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing

sock love

Redbud socks by Linda Welch in STR 'Budding Twig' for the RSC.

... Love

His socks compelled one's attention without losing one's respect.

furry friends

Perhaps the only taste...promises, promises for warmer days to come!

Busy, busy here at Chez NK.
Lots of knitting to talk about -- socks in progress, socks that have been blocked,
but no photoshoots yet.

I hope you're having a great week!

There are two means of refuge from the misery of life - music and cats.
