Releve is a step in ballet in which the heels are lifted off the floor and the dancer balances on the balls of her feet. Not only is that a lovely visual for a sock, but it relates to the inspiration stitch for these cable and lace socks. The "Germaine" stitch is a pairing of a basic cable with an arrowhead lace. Germaine has a similar spelling to the word "germane", which means "relevant" - and so, in the same way that changing a few letters leads to a completely new meaning, changing a few aspects of the original stitch leads to a charming sock!
