These steampunk-inspired convertible socks are named after a real-life character in “The Difference Engine” by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. Daughter of poet Lord Byron, Ada Lovelace was a writer and math wizard who contributed to Charles Babbage’s early mechanical general-purpose computer, the Analytical Engine. She is credited with writing the first algorithm intended to be processed by a machine, and is often regarded as the world’s first computer programmer which earned her the nickname “The Enchantress of Numbers.”

This pattern is the May installment of the Rockin’ Sock Club 2010 from Blue Moon Fiber Arts.

Socks are knit toe-up with a convertible lace cuff.
