After a wonderful trip along the Pacific Coast Highway we took a turn inland to visit Alix in Spokane, Washington. I was amazed how diverse the state is! There's lots of beaches, but huge areas are covered with forests, there are really high mountains and when travel to the east of the state you even go through a real dry desert like stretch of land.
Again, we were so grateful for the hospitality we experienced by Alix and her family! Sponkane, where she lives, is a really pretty town and I was impressed by the Spokane Falls within the city limits. So my sock pattern for Alix came to life, thinking about the place where we met: Spokane Falls
The picture above shows the socks that Alix received as my gift, and on the right, the beautiful yarn LAurel, SpinningFates, dyed for this pattern. And since it's such an easy to knit pattern, which I really enjoyed,I knit a second pair for my pattern page in a slightly different yarn.
