Meringues always intimidated me, but one day, Pinterest tutorials gave me the courage to try. After popping some egg whites into the stand mixer, I stared in awe as they began to stiffen and peaks formed. It was magic, and I had done it.

These socks came together in a similar way, and so I knew I needed to name them after my favorite magical treat. I wasn’t at all sure how the stitch pattern would work out, but I went crashing along and hoped for the best. When I saw how beautifully the stretched stitches stacked on top of each other after a few repeats, I felt a little of that same thrill.
