Maia was the oldest of the seven sisters known as the Pleiades (these days you can see the sisters in the night sky above and right of Orion the Hunter, if you’re in the northern hemisphere). Maia was the most beautiful of the sisters and lived quietly in a cave in the Arcadian mountains.
These socks fairly flew off the needles — working up the pattern was a lot of fun, and they were quick to knit.
Requirements are approximately 400 yds/ 360 m of sock-weight yarn (the sock in the photo is made of bulk yarn I hand-painted myself; pretty much any regular sock yarn will do), and four US2/2.5 mm double-pointed needles (or size required to get gauge). The size is adjustable by working the foot to the length you desire.
