First Beach Socks

The second socks in the 'When Vampires Knit Socks..' Sock Club can be unveiled!

These socks are inspired by Bella’s visit to First Beach where she is reunited with her childhood friend Jacob. When this happens in the book, the weather is unusually nice* and in the sunlight the seemingly grey pebbles on the beach reveal a vast array of subtle colours – gold, green, lavender, blue. The socks begin with ribbing with a little shell pattern and the pattern on the leg is reminiscent of the gentle rippling water in the tidal pool where Bella sits and lets her mind wander….

*when they filmed this scene the weather was not nice, scenes had to be changed to include hats, coats and blankets, I am staying true to the written word on this one!

These will be available to non-club members in April 2011, but you can add them to your favourites on Ravelry here

Seriously this yarn is SO PRETTY, I didn't want to stop knitting it - Joy, The Knitting Goddess is a dyeing genius!
