Experiencing the mighty bison up close at the Custer State Park and Wind Cave National Park and learning about the local settler and Native American history of the Black Hills during a summer camping trip to South Dakota were the inspiration for these unique,beaded toe-up socks.
The beads are pre-strung in a Native American inspired design and then knitted in for a bracelet like look. A knitted feather design down the front and a picot edge round out these very dressy and eye-catching pair of socks.

I purchased this (and a few other BWC products) at the Taos Wool Festival and haven't started these yet. Working on the Infinity Scarf with Tracks Sport and loving it. Adapting the pattern for weight and yardage. Loving this yarn and all other BWC products!
I bought this as a challenge to myself, as I am a fairly timid sock knitter. It's a wonderful pattern to get over your fears! I'm about to start the beading section, and the directions are clear enough that I'm sure I can do it!
