These socks are for a knitalong on Ravelry, and a knitalong with Anna. The "Austentatious" group is reading and knitting Emma, Jane Austen's matchmaker. Hence, a paired project! Not only are socks "paired" by nature, but the design on the sock is "paired" - one lovely, lacy panel down each side of the leg.
When I followed up on Ryan's description of the design, I discovered pictures of the Dublin Bay climbing roses that inspired the name. Aren't they lovely?
