Just a Little Progress

This is just a little progress picture of the latest sock from the Rockin' Sock Club. The pattern is great, I really love the look of the pattern and even more I really like knitting it. The colors of the yarn are wonderful, Blue Moon you did it again. I've never knit with beads before and surprisingly I don't mind it, and it really adds something special to the sock. So I learned that there are two methods to beading pre-stringing and using a crochet hook. The method that was recommended for this sock was pre-stringing the beads because you can set the bead between the stitches. I also got to try a new cast-on called the tubular cast-on. It worked great, super stretchy and it has a bit of knitting magic in it too. If you ever need a cast-on try the tubular method.

Those look beautiful! I just finished stringing all of my beads tonight so hopefully I'll start them this weekend.
