Yarn keeps me from opening fire.

What do you get when the Diamante meets the Pedicure Sock in a Parisian cafe, and they proceed to make sweet, sweet music?

The Diamante Pedicure Sock (goo-goo, ga-ga)


I knitted this with an unidentified hand-dyed sock-weight yarn that I received as a Secret Santa gift, along with some size 1 dpns. I liked the idea of the pedicure sock, but wanted something that would show off the yarn.

As in the Diamante pattern, I started at the toe, with a k2, p2 ribbing for five rows. Then I started the (very easy, very pretty) pattern. I'd never knit a toe-up sock, and I can't say that I like it better or worse than top-down. I'm bisocksual.

Here she is, on my foot:


That toenail polish? It's "I'm Not Really A Waitress," by OPI. It's my favorite red.
