Time for Tea Socks are a delightful pair of toe-up socks. Lately hand-dyed, speckled yarns seem to be popping up all over the place, so I designed these socks to take advantage of these beautiful skeins.

The stitch pattern features little clustered knot stitches over a stockinette background, providing a pretty detail without detracting from the yarn’s speckled beauty. Don’t worry, though – the knots used here lay flat on the underside, so your feet won’t feel a thing but soft, smooth comfort.

The easy-to-memorize stitch pattern makes this the perfect project to relax with while curled up with a cup of tea for a bit of movie watching. Chocolate is highly recommended too.
