Summer of Socks

I've finally cast on for my Summer of Socks socks:

I'm actually to the heel turn now, but it's cloudy today so I used the picture I took yesterday. Isn't the yarn great? It's Austermann Step, believe it or not. I've always loved the Austermann Step because it feels so nice and I have two pairs which really do help my poor cracked feet in the winter. But I've always found the colors, well, on the boring side. The striping was sort of cool, but the colors boring. I came across this one while on a yarn crawl with a friend on Saturday and couldn't resist. I mean, not only purple and pink in the same sock yarn, but also aloe and jojoba. I's some really nice stuff. And I'm doing my usual Plain Old Stockinette pattern.

There might have been a couple more skeins that jumped into my shopping bag.

I doubt I'll have the most socks in SOS, but at least I've started!

Oh yeah - you gotta watch out for those mexican jumping yarns. They'll infiltrate your basket faster than you can say "Yippee-ki-yi-yarn."
