And more socks
These ones are September's sock of the month, and I finished them Oct. 1. Why haven't I blogged about them yet? There are several reasons, including general laziness, but I am displeased with the photos. I'm still struggling with that, but at least the Fawkes ones came out okay.
The yarn is Austerman Step, which is a little scratchy, but the aloe and jojoba make up for it.
It's a nice, simple pattern, beaded rib, cuff down. Once again, I wouldn't have chosen the yarn (or possibly the pattern) on my own, but I'm pleasantly surprised with it.
And the stripes match up pretty well.
Pattern: September sock of the month, Ewe and Me
Yarn: Austerman Step (75% superwash wool, 25% nylon, 450 yds), 1 skein
Needles: Size 1 dpn
Cost: Just under $20 for the yarn and pattern
Time: Knit in about two weeks, took about 4 more to blog
