Bittersweet Socks Pattern

You might recall the Bittersweet Socks pattern that I designed for the Dye Dreams Four Seasons Sock Club.


I designed this to be their November sock, and it is now available. (As I write this, the Dye Dreams website seems to be down, but check back there if you are interested.)

This past weekend I did my annual trip down to Graves Mountain for a weekend of fun with friends

  1. It looks like you did a lot of stuff! Wow.

  2. Some mighty fine photography going on here! May I ask, what kind of camera do you have? The pictures are really beautiful.

  3. The bittersweets are awesome! Love that pattern.

    And looks like you had a blast this weekend. Love the llama (or alpaca, or whatever it is. It’s fuzzy and cute)

  4. Those Alpacas are just too funny. Had they been recently sheared? Always nice to come home to purrs!! Looks like you had a grand time!!

  5. I had a great time – and we hiked!

  6. That sock is stunning, Wendy! Love it! And Graves Mountain looks beautiful! I’ve never been, but maybe next year!
    .-= Mary´s last blog ..Rest in peace, Mom =-.

  7. The sock is luscious! And Graves Mountain looks so inviting.

    I am curious, too, about what camera you use.

  8. Thank you so much, Wendy, for sharing your pictures. I could almost feel the crunching leaves under my feet and hear the splashing of the creek. Those alpacas(?) sure do look cute with their fuzzy heads and pantaloons.
