There’s just something so delightfully romantic about knitting socks. I don’t know if it is the tiny needles used to create beautiful textures or the speed with which I can finish an entire project. Whatever it is, I can’t get enough of it.
Protect delicate toes from the wintery frost with these beautifully cozy socks. Helada is knit from the top down in our fabulously soft Bulletproof Sock with small cables and lace that meld together into a lovely texture that comforts as much as it delights.
Tabetha’s Tip for Knitting Helada
A stretchy cast-on ensures that the cuff will fit around the heel-arch of your foot. Try experimenting with new cast-on techniques, such as the Twisted German Cast-On.
Behind the Brilliance: Tabetha’s Holiday Faves
- Favorite way to spend the holidays: Tucked into a cozy chair near the fireplace, with lights twinkling on the tree and the smell of cookies fresh from the oven.
- Favorite holiday colours: Oh, that’s too hard to choose! I love all the colours of the season, from purples to golds
- Favorite holiday treat: Peanut blossom cookies
- Favorite thing to wear for a fancy holiday event: I don’t think I have ever been to a fancy holiday event, but if I did, I would wear a cute little black cocktail dress paired with a brightly coloured purple shawl. Or gold!
Here are some other, sweetly romantic, colour ideas to arouse your creative imagination.
Helada is available as an individual pattern or in the Holidays with SweetGeorgia, Vol. 2 eBook both on our website and on Ravelry. Tabetha spends most of her time here at SweetGeorgia (because she LOVES it!), but you can find her other work and tutorials over at www.tabethahedrick.com
