Oh, blog. I promise to never, ever ever leave you like that again. On the plus side, look what I made you!

These socks are kind of geeky. You all are shocked by that, right? I knew you would be. See, this sparkly purple yarn just wanted to be something royal. Something with strong lines and fine details, but nothing too overwhelming. So I forged a crown for it and constructed some columns, and that was all it needed. The traveling cables on the heel and instep create a fantastic fit and allow the foot to switch smoothly into stockinette, for both comfort and elegance.

Pattern: Mine, all mine!
Yarn: Kraemer Sterling Silk and Silver, 1 skein
Needles: US1.5/2.5mm Addi Turbos, which I do not recommend unless you like dull needles for tiny little cable crosses. Me, I like sharp needles for those. But I didn’t have a pair handy.

Tyrian has an official home here, while the project page on Ravelry for my particular pair is here. As a bonus, for the rest of the month, anyone who purchases the Hera sock pattern in addition to this one will receive $2.00 back.

    First impression: !!! It’s so pointy. I’m enchanted. Mesmerized. They’re like princess socks.
