Twinkle Toes

Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle.

I love wearing hand knit socks with beads. No one can see them, but I know my socks have a little bling. It makes my feet feel extra special. Perfect for the gray gloomy days that are coming in the PNW.  I used to shy away from adding beads to my knitting. It’s much easier than it sounds. Knitty has a great article on the different ways to add beads. My personal favorite way is to use a fleegle beader. It comes in different sizes so you can get one for your favorite weight of yarn. A crochet hook would also work well. Here’s a photo of my Stage Four Tour de Sock with beads.

The beads on these are very subtle. And yes, sock one is done except for closing up the toe. I keep trying to teach Ernie how to Kitchener stitch, but he’s all paws.

Update on other wips:

  • Earth & Sky: I have about 1 inch of the border done.
  • Portland Bias Scarf: Skein two has 3.70 grams left.
  • Frank in Pairs & Dewberry Dancer: It’s possible these two are going to start an uprising if I don’t start working on them soon. Maybe I could manage with less sleep.

Ernie’s excited for the weekend and more snuggle time!

Stay tuned. I hope to have liberated Orphans this weekend.
