shares her inspiration for her gently beaded Fiddlehead Socks..."Fiddlehead
ferns are the harbingers of spring, with their tender spiraling shoots that are
fun to watch as they unfurl. The beaded center of the front lace pattern reminds
me of the tiny buds that emerge everywhere in the springtime, and the top is the
feathered glory of the ferns in their bloom of full growth. Socks are beaded
throughout using the crochet hook add-as-you-go method."
