Hot Sox Part V

I think that of all the colors and patterns, this is my favorite. It has an alternating lace and cable pattern running up from the toe to the leg. The different blues, pinks and a hint of orange makes everything really pop. 

The pattern is a great one to do for Valentine's Day. I do plan on making this again for a special someone, but in a myriad of pink colors. I have to finish the Hot Sox Part VI before I start this.

Hot Sox Part IV

I really enjoyed this latest edition. It was the first time that I tried knitting with beads. It was quite easy as I didn't have to string the beads beforehand. I had more success on the short row heel this time also. 

The camera doesn't do the pattern justice; it's a honeycomb type of pattern with a bead in the middle. 

I've worn them already and have received lots of compliments. The color goes great with a pair of jeans.
