The sparkle of
metallic thread and shiny beads of HeartStrings' Glitz and Beads Socks
will make your feet happy and feel like dancing! The beaded pattern echoes
the rhythmic sound waves of pulsing music to which we can imagine ourselves
tapping in musical cadence.
And there are plenty of features
in these socks to make your feet and knitting needles sing!
- Note the nice attention to
design details at cuff, ankle and instep where the ribbing flows into and
out of the wavelike beaded pattern.
- "Keyboard" ribbing at cuff
and ankle provides a firm, yet flexible fit.
- The heel flap flows from the
ankle ribbing in a slipped stitch design that gives extra cushion and
- Left and right swirl toes fit
well on your feet and are easy to make, too (no grafting!).
These socks feature Kreinik
Fashion Twist metallic thread made of 100% polyester with a laminate of silver.
This thread is a perfect complement to socks because it is anti-microbial,
making it resistant to fungus. Most metallic yarns tend to be stiff and
scratchy, but this one is absolutely not. Along with the softness, there is just
enough body in the thread to add firmness to the knitted stitches, thereby
supporting the weight of the glass beads with ease.
Adult small (medium, large). 265
