New Sock of the Month - The Crystal Galaxy

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away . . .

Not too far, actually.  As the patterns in our Sock of the Month projects get progressively more interesting with new skill building opportunities, you may think the new Crystal Galaxy Socks were designed by an advanced alien civilization.  The truth is they were designed right here in our own galaxy, in Galena, Illinois. 

Crystal Galaxy Socks
Worked from the top down, these very handsome socks sport an elaborate out-of-this-world texture that's remarkably simple to knit.  What appears to be a simple all-over geometric pattern is worked into the texture of the sock. The twisted and traveling ribs will challenge and delight you - and the rib pattern gives the sock amazing strength.

Do you prefer written instructions or charted instructions?  It doesn't matter . . .  The Crystal Galaxy Socks pattern includes both.  You'll need a cable needle and a little care, and you'll do great by just following the pattern.

Bonus:  The Crystal Galaxy Sock pattern is FREE with the purchase of Dream in Color's Everlasting Sock HEAVY

Crystal Galaxy Socks
Everlasting Sock HEAVY is the big brother of Everlasting Sock.  HEAVY is the same 100% Superwash Australian Wool, but the gauge is slightly heavier.  And don't worry, you can still knit up a pair of socks with just one skein. This high twist, durable yarn is available for a limited time only - and only at FiberWild! - so grab a skein before they're gone!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
