Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
This pattern takes its name from my favorite citrus fruit, the grapefruit. I prefer its French name though, it just screams juicy and delicious; pamplemousse! This sock is full of juicy cables and while it looks complicated, there are actually a number of “rest” rows in which no cabling is done.
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
I often find myself in awe of the architectural feats of generations past. Chateau du la Rochepot is a 13th century medieval castle in France that I found truly fascinating. Perhaps its most striking feature is its beautifully tiled roof, from which I drew my inspiration.

This hat was inspired by the fictional valley of Withywindle in Eriador, Middle Earth. The winding river that shares its name with the valley moves through the roots of the great trees on the banks much like these cables ebb and flow through this hat.

Heddwyn (HETH-win) is a Welsh name that means “blessed peace”. The pattern takes it’s inspiration from a medieval stained glass window in the south of Wales.
