Mermaid Socks

These are “Mermaid” by Janel Laidman, from her book The Enchanted Sole, and knit with Malabrigo Sock (aka, butter in yarn form) in the colourway “Alcaucil” (kindof a dark green with bits of bluey-gray)… It also has little matte gold beads!

This was my first time working with beads – I honestly thought I would hate it, and thus never bothered before. But it was actually quite fun! There aren’t many beads, just one here and there, and they are placed over top of a stitch before you knit it, rather than stringing them all on the yarn before you start. It’s just an extra little pattern feature to keep your eye on, and keep your brain interested…
