Bejewel your feet with HeartStrings' lovley Two Ways About It Beaded Socks.  There are many ways to incorporate beads while knitting. These socks use two different ways; thus, they are a good way to experience the two methods side-by-side in the same design and learn the merits of each.

The lace pattern on the leg of the sock has a lot of give, so it conforms nicely to the shapeliest of legs. Slimming columns of beads frame the silhouette of the lace diamonds on the front of the leg, while the column of beads at center back simulates the look of a high-fashion seamed stocking. 1-1 ribbing transitions from cuff into the beaded lace pattern, then is re-introduced as the ankle approaches and continues down the top of the foot as it takes over the instep sts where the lace diamond motif ends. These socks not only are a pleasure to look at, but they will also wear well with their reinforced slip-stitch heels and toes.

Although the knitting is not terribly difficult, there is almost always something interesting going on. So plan to focus some attention while knitting these and enjoy the process.
