For Your Inner Wealtheow

These clever and intricate hand-knit socks that incorporate the opening lines of Beowulf have been making the literary-fashion rounds. 

And I would wear them round the skating rink, too, trusting that neither Grendel nor Grendel's Mother would rise from the icy depths.

If there are any knitting pros who would like to illuminate their own manuscript socks, the pattern, by the Sanguine Gryphon, is available for purchase here.

Wish I could buy an already made pair. I'm not so handy with nitting.
