austerman step sox


yep, a pic of the sox just finished....can't believe it myself...used the scanner!
anyway, pattern is toe up on 2 size 0 addi's, w/a traditional heel...very nice & they fit me like a glove!! lol!!!
that's why you see the yarn woven in....pattern is by Shibui called Toe Up Sock & you stop 3" before the toe to do the heel...really easy tho it was designed for dpns so I had to use my brain...now I'll write down everything I did, measure the sock itself, & from now on I have the perfect sock pattern...for me!

thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes!

Thy look great Ollie, and better yet just finding out you haven't forgotten you have this blog. LOL
Love the colors, and the yarn looks really soft and lovely. Wear for many years, and in good health, please?

Take care friend. :)
