No, you are not seeing double, well actually, I guess you are! I DID knit two pair of Friday Harbor socks. With two skeins of the Mountain Colors Weavers Wool in the stash, and the intention of knitting a new pair of Friday Harbor socks for myself anyway, I just had to knit two pair. One is for my Sockapal2za Pal and one for me. During the first Sockapalooza I knit Latvian Lace socks for my pal, and loved them so much, I knit myself a pair. It was a nice way of remembering what fun trading socks with someone can be. This time it was due to an error in size that
forced me made it possible for me to knit two pair before the September deadline. Now I'll be able to look at my feet and wonder if my pal is also wearing her socks.

And yes, it is Monday at Zeneedle, and you come here to see pictures of our lovely mountains.
After our usual breakfast stop, we took a drive over the mountains to Park City...the back way as we call it. This is the pine forest you drive through near the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon. A friend once named the 'Bleary Forest', as there are so many trees that they look bleary to the eye (and there is still a bit of snow on the peaks).
This picture is from the top of the pass looking at the mountains to the south. The peak that still has snow atop is Mount Timpanogos in Utah County.
It was a little disheartening to drive this road as it has been mostly paved. For years it was dirt all the way into Park City and it was rarely traveled. Now, the drive through the canyon takes you past a new ski lodge, multiple new chair lifts, many monster mansions, and dozens and dozens of new condos. This once pristine area is being over built by the rich and famous. It's sad, sad to see and we most likely won't be taking this road into Park City again. There are plenty of other places in our beautiful State where we can go to enjoy the landscape, and we will.
Thanks Camille for helping with the double footed photo.
