"d" is for

...dewdrops! hey, i'm on a roll here! lace, cables, AND BEADS! (yes, i seem to be on a bead kick right now. why do you ask?!) i LOVE my lace, cables, and beads!

designed for theknitter.com's luxury sock club
april 2009

pagewood farm "st. elias" in watermelon
us size 1.5 (2.5mm) needles
gauge: 8.5 sts & 12 rows per inch

sparkly cuff
(the pattern for the kit only has one row of beads)

carried design down heel flap
(i love fancy heels!)

i loved this yarn. it was so soft and the yardage was very generous...450 yds/150gm. i had a lot left-over. was going to weigh it just out of curiosity but haven't gotten around to it. the colors didn't pool or stripe which was nice. AND (are you sitting down?) i finished BOTH socks! pictures of both to follow later.
