Nothing borrowed and nothing blue.
But this Austermann Step, colour #07 is an old favourite of mine from the original series. 75% Wool 25% Nylon with Aloe Vera and Joboba Oil infused into the yarn.
On a recent Stash-Up I grabbed a bag of it. Truth be told, I love all of the original Step colourways.
This pair is size XL, knit with the 72 cylinder on the Verdun 47.
And this is colour #51
Just in time for spring, these wake-me-up colours are just what the doctor ordered to treat many winter weeks without sun!
This pair is size M+, knit with the 72 cylinder on the Verdun 47.
The Step yarns are a treat to knit – they flow through the sock knitters like a hot knife through butter. I do find that I need to vaccuum the csm’s after every dozen or so pairs as there gets to be a build up of powdery fluff, which I presume is from the oils.
And I refuse to answer the question, “can a vaccuum suck the needles right off a sock machine?”.
