Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.
It appears a sure way to get me to knit a mystery sock is to put beads in it. Also, a moderately complicated pattern is more appealing if you receive it in four or five parts instead of all at once.
I wanted to use the Cookie A Sock Club yarn from June, because I love the color. The green seed beads go with it nicely, although they are kind of hard to see from afar. I used a 0.6 mm crochet hook to place the beads. As usual, the beads were not uniform in size, and the hook and yarn would not fit through some of them, but luckily the majority of them worked. I do prefer the 8/0 as opposed to 6/0 beads on socks.
