Tuil-Bheum – Socks for a Rainy Day

Blue socks with a column of lace up the outside of the footYou know when the skies open and there’s a sudden downpour, and instead of there being a road outside your house there’s now a rushing torrent of water? In Gaelic that torrent of water is called Tuil-Bheum, and that’s exactly what the lace pattern on these socks reminds me of – a rushing, twisting, cascading torrent, racing downhill. As soon as I had the idea for Tuil-Bheum I went searching for the perfect blue yarn and I eventually found this gorgeous yarn by JellyBeans Yarns on Etsy. It’s called Cerulean and is just the perfect colour! The sock is a really easy knit with just enough interest to keep you going in the simple lace pattern. I designed it with my favourite wedge toe and heel flap and gusset with eye of partridge stitch heel, but you can, of course, easily swap in your favourite heel and toe! The lace cascading down the outside of each foot is deceptively simple – it would be a great introduction if you’re new to lace knitting.

If you’re quick, there’s plenty of time to knit up a pair before Christmas, or it would be a great pattern to knit over the Christmas holidays – interesting enough to keep you going, but with plenty of stockinette so you can catch up with friends, play games with the family, or watch all those films over Christmas while knitting!
