New sock yarn discovery



This is some seriously yummy stuff. I made up this sample sock for the Bonita Knitting Store from Austermann Step yarn. It's 75% wool and 25% polyamid and comes in 100 gram, 420 meter skeins. The extra bonus is the Aloe Vera and Jojoba oil smooshed in it. The 1st row felt a bit slick, but then I got used to it. Made a plain sock to bring out the yarn pattern, but it's more the soft feel of the yarn that appeals to me.

It will be a test to see if I can resist buying lots of it.

This is color 11 - Dune
