As I told you the other day, it took until Christmas 2014 before the first pair of my 'friendship socks' made it to the recipient, and by then I already knew that there would be more patterns. Our summer holidays in 2014 took us to the United States and to Canada, and we didn't only see wonderful places during our journey along the Pacific Coast Highway, but we also met some of my Ravelry friends.
We took the tour from San Diego northbound and right at the start of our trip we met Shelley in California. We spent a wonderful day at the beach with her and her husband, had barbeque and drinks and as always when you enjoy yourself, the time we could stay was over too soon. In addition to inviting us to her home, Shelley gifted me some yarn and one was a set of Twisted Sisters on Toula, a yarn dyed by SpinningFates. Well, and that gave me the idea to make a pair of socks for Shelley using a yarn by another Ravelry friend... so my pattern for Shelley was this
made in the wonderful Twisted Sisters colourway 'Kissing Frog'. So I guess it's easy to find out what inspired Shelley to name the pattern Twisted Kiss.
As it is my habit I had to do my best to manipulate the stripes and it looks just as fab in other colourways. For my pattern pictures I used the yarn Shelley had giften me, the Twisted Sisters in 'Finish Winter'. Yep, these sure are colours to brigthen even the dullest winter day, don't you think?
