We all need a little bling to add sparkle to the depths of winter. Whether you dance with the stars or are strictly a fan with your feet up, these socks will add the necessary glamour. Glitterball are made with fingering yarn held double.

These are toe-up with a wedge toe and an afterthought heel with an optional mini short row gusset (these can be knit two at a time easily if you like to work this way as I did - instructions are for one at a time).
