I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Beaded Socks

I finally finished my beaded socks. My girlfriend calls them beaded beauties and that they are. I love them! I am ready to make another pair.

On the needles I have a Chevron pattern from "Sensational Knitted Socks" book. I am using Regia cotton in surf colors. I modified it a little and am making a regular heel flap instead of the forethought heel in the book. I am not sure I would like doing the kitchener stitch on the heel.

I thought I would show you a picture of my latest additions to my sock stash. Some of it I bought at two different yarn shops in Grand Rapids a few weeks ago while on a bowling trip with my husband. We went to City Knitting and Threadbender. Both very nice shops. That was the best part of the trip! But of course I enjoyed watching hubby bowl too *grin* Some of it is from my local yarn shop, Elaine's in Davison. Twice a month we get together for knit club and I really enjoy going. I have mom coming and now my sister's mother in law has joined us. I am teaching them both to knit socks. I guess my addiction has been a little contatious.

I love your beaded beauties Cheryl. Also that pattern you are using with the surf yarn. It looks lacey. And your stash is building girlfriend!
