High up on a hilltop, the landscape stretches as far as the eye can see, birds swoop up and down and the wind kisses your face.

Knitting: Knee-highs
In December 2015 I participated in an advent calendar swap. Send out six 5g miniskeins to four people and get 24 miniskeins yourself. I wanted to use up as much as I could of the skeins I got, so I came up with these striped knee-high socks. They are toe-up socks, with an afterthought heel and a twisted rib cuff.
