I am not doing holiday knitting this year. . .
but these are for a birthday coming up next week, my oldest niece will be 21!
I will give these lovely pair of Walking With Emma socks to her when I give both nieces their sweaters some time before the year is over, when we will meet at the castle for a spontaneous photo shoot.
(( I can’t imagine being with them and not smothering them in hugs! ))
So close to the winter solstice, I go stepping out of autumn, walking with tender foot steps so I am careful not to wake nature from its much needed wintery slumber. Waiting, waiting, waiting . . . and staying creatively immersed and thoughtful while we get through another shelter-in-place for the remainder of the year.
Everybody, please stay home and stay well!
I love these shots. You’re such a good photographer. The simplicity of a lovely pair of socks. Simplicity is a luxury unto itself.
How lucky am I to have a professional copy writer (and all around phenomenal writer!) make comments on my blog! 🙂 Thank you Sorcha! xx
Sweet. Function and form…perfect. Merry Christmas. Happy slumber. Good health. Blessed New Year. 😘❤️V
Aw Virginia, thank you, and Merry Winter Peace , and please keep in tip top shape, because if anything, I need someone to send my dye experiments to, so stay well!
Jen, your nieces have been the benefactors of your gorgeous handknits for many years. I am sure they both appreciate your gifts. Those socks are fabulous.
Stay safe and snug in your home. I am staying put as well. Just me and the cats enjoying the solitude.
Wen, how happy I am to know that you and your lucky kitties are just hanging out for the winter together, and we will keep in touch on a regular basis, as we have for a long time. Thank you again, and again for all of your encouragement! xx
I am saddened that you won’t be able to see your family for Christmas. The socks are absolutely perfect!
