plus plus have to do with each other?
I am planning (and am still working on a backup plan in case this fails) on making Odess-style socks. The yarn is a sport-weight wool and the beads are golden in tone (though I do have a blue mix as well if I can't stand it anymore).
The plan is to figure out how many stitch I need to cast on to get fit and then figure out what the nearest Odessa-appropriate multiple is. I want the beading to end above the ankle, so they will be comfortable in socks. I'm afraid that they won't look good if I do that, so I might have to make a second pair of shoe socks and bead these all the way. I want the heel to reflect the swirling of Odessa, so it is likely that I will have to do an afterthought and do the patterning like the crown decrease for the hat. Part of me feels overly ambitious, but at least I am not spinning my own sock yarn!
