Vega, like Aldebaran, is a fully stranded party sock that wants to go dancing. It also shares Aldebaran’s drawbacks of being a little hard to get on because of the relative inelasticity of the stranding, and being hard to make exactly the length you want because of the pattern demands. Surely trivial problems.

The pair of socks takes about 2 ounces of each of two color yarns. The gauge will be 6.5 sts/inch and 7 rnds/inch with exactly the same needles and yarn that give 6 sts/inch in stockinette.
