This is the January Socks that Rock Kit. I am unapologetically showing it to you, I love it that much.
It is just so perfect for me. I love blue, in all it's many shades and I think the beads really show it off well.
This pattern is a labour of love for me. And labour it is. I had to learn how to do a tubular cast on, which is pretty cool and I have no idea how it works. I'm also stuck sliding beads along the yarn as I go, which is a bit of a pain. The beads sit in between the stitches, which means they all had to be strung on the yarn in advance. I thought I'd be smart and put ALL the beads on the yarn instead of just enough for the first sock. Turns out that was a mistake. It means that I have to spend time shuffling the beads along the yarn as I go.
But it's worth it.
