WIP: Austermann Step SocksFeb 11, 2008 1:20 PM
After all the personal news, this post may seem a little frivolous but it's time to get back to "normal" whatever that might mean now.
This is my latest knitting project. These are self striping Austermann Step socks.
This is the first time I've knit socks. I'm only on the first one which is about 5 inches so far. The goal is 7 inches before turning the heel and doing all the tricky stuff I've never done before. This is also the first time I've knit in the round with 5 needles! The needles are so tiny that progress is very slow. I'm making them for me unless they turn out too big/small in which case someone else will be the lucky recipient.
