007 Snap-A-Dozen Days – December

Or: “the Joy of Socks”

I kept wanting to do a winter photo shoot, but when I had time for photographs, it was either snowing or cloudy – not the beautiful sunny blue-sky days I was hoping for. So my last Snap-A-Dozen-Days will be about the joy of giving and receiving. I barely celebrate Christmas any more, because it doesn’t have much religious meaning for me, and I hate the commercialism and stress. I still do a few family gifts, but mostly I’ve liberated myself from the obligatory gifting. I’d rather enjoy spending time with friends and family than worrying about shopping for things they don’t really need. Instead, I’d much rather give gifts because I’m inspired to, for whatever the reason.

Although these socks happened to be knitted during the Christmas season, the timing was just coincidental. I bought this yarn to make socks for my husband just because I thought he’d really like them, and he does. So here’s a photo shoot of someone truly enjoying his “just because” gift. Click any picture to embiggen (I love that word!).

Tie-Dye anyone?
They also make a good hat
Wait – I can’t see!
Nice as a shawl, too.
