Class socks, a little fancy

For the sock class I am teaching I didn’t want to do the boring ol’ ribbing for 2″ then stockinette sport weight socks. So I bought some 6/0 beads last night in a teal color and used them to do this:

Keeping the front of the sock in 2×2 rib I decided to do the back with a simple 2 stitch twisted cable every 4th row with a bead. Clog sock heels really. From the front all boring & blah but on the back, wham! All kinds of busy-ness happening! At first I thought it was just too much but now I am really liking how crazy it all looks together. Only half an inch more on the legs then to the boring stockinette foot.

  1. Oh my! There are so many amazing clog sock patterns out there that it’s a little mindblowing. I have found that I only wear my handknit socks now. Even with my tennies.

  2. Everytime I knit a new pair, Bud asks, half kidding, “are those for me?” (usually because they are most definitely girly). This Christmas he just may get a surprise….

  3. George is smart enough to ask ‘who’s that for?’ before ever expecting anything else for him! I did make him some socks in April for his birthday, he likes them but doesn’t wear them all that often ;o)
