Twisty trees. Gnarled branches. The stitch pattern that travels down the center panel of these socks reminded me of just that. When you search “twisty trees” on the internet, you’ll find pictures of Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’. But don’t let the twists fool you, this is a deceptively easy pair of socks to knit!

Glacier Point provides a spectacular view of Yosemite Valley, Half Dome, and Yosemite Falls.

A lake hidden in the mountains. Clear blue waters amidst redwoods and pine trees. Summers of my childhood were spent here, and when I returned this year I was inspired.
