Queen of Beads Socks

Queen of Beads Socks
Yarn - Socks that Rock lightweight in My Blue Heaven
Pattern - Queen of Beads by Sivia Harding

I finally have something new to share. Both the yarn and pattern are from the January 2009 Rockin' Sock Club. I finished them just in time. The new Rockin' Sock Club kit is due to ship this week. I made a few mods to the pattern. I knit my usual cast-on & cuff and omitted the beads on the instep. This was my first time knitting with beads. Stringing the beads and constantly having to push the beads down were kind of a pain, but I'm very pleased with the finished socks.
