Celaena Socks are a cozy, textured sock knit cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. The socks shown are knit with a fingering sock yarn held double with a lace weight mohair. Those yarns together make a DK weight yarn. These socks could also be knit with any DK weight yarn.

Wear these cozy socks and curl up with a book. These perfect reading socks are named after Celaena Sardothien, a heroine in Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. Celaena loves to read books, but did not have access to books while at Endovier. When Celaena ends up at the Glass Palace in Rifthold, she finally has time to read. Celaena devours books and loves luxurious things. For these reasons, I imagine Celaena wearing these cozy socks and reading. Make your own cozy reading socks, too. #celaenasocks
