Toasty toes

Aloe sokkar
Originally uploaded by rajnos.

Now my toes will be warm and soft with these socks knit with Austermann Step aloe vera/jojoba oil yarn. US 1 needles (2.25mm), 2 circs, toe up.

I wanted these socks to be fraternal instead of identical. I think they would be more boring and predictable if they were both the same. This way the pattern looks more random.

We are getting settled in the new house. Hopefully I can start to knit more in the future than I have in the last few weeks.

Happy new year! How is the sock yarn, is it really soft? They came out very nice.

Nice to hear that you are finally settling, I was thinking about you during the holidays and hoping that moving was going well.

Thank you both

They are soft. Not supersoft, but softer than regular mass produced sockyarn.
