Mixed Jelly Beans Socks
HeartStrings knitting pattern #S07
Give your feet some sweet fun for Easter time or anytime. Choose a multi-color yarn, solid color yarn, and have fun putting together a random bead mix of some of the colors in the multi-color yarn. Then you're set to make these socks with their mixed bead colors nestled into the solid-color ribbed pattern and coordinating multi-color feet. An extra bonus is the hint of slipped stitches in the arch/instep area hugs foot for a super- comfortable fit.

This pattern is dedicated to a dear friend Robin Driscoll. She gave me the initial inspiration for using mixed-color beads on sock leg to match the yarn color in foot of sock (where you can't put beads for a typical wearable sock – although one day I will make an artistic pair of socks with beads all over and name it "these are the socks that try men's soles" [laughing]).
Not yet having a name for the sock design, I happened to come across a bag of jelly beans on my snack shelf – those jelly beans reminded me of the medley of bead colors and the happy feeling of these socks. And Robin is one of the happiest and most out-flowing warm-hearted people I know, so the name stuck. Of course, you can choose other colors and name your socks whatever feeling (or food group) they remind you of!
