Finished Summer of Socks and a New Pair

One pair down:

Specs:
Pattern: My own plain old stockinette sock pattern
Needles: size 0s
Yarn: Austermann Step

I really enjoyed working with this yarn. I love the wild, girly colors!

And more girly colors:

I'm using a pattern called Stansfield 14 from More Sensational Socks. I think it gives this yarn just enough texture to be interesting. I really like how it's turning out.

I guess my goal for Summer of Socks is one pair a week for the duration of the summer. I think I can manage that. (I most certainly have enough yarn in the stash:-)

Love the wild Step socks. I have two pair and they are a pleasure to wear. One pair a week - Wow! You are ambitious.

A pair a week would be pretty damn impressive! :-)

I keep meaning to try Step. It sounds like such interesting stuff (though I do wonder how the jojoba etc. stays on for more than one washing.)

I believe it was you who commented once that there's nothing wrong with girly socks.

I really like how the new socks are knitting up. The stitch patterns really shows off the yarn, I think.

A pair a week! Me too. I think it's doable.

Love the stripedy socks, and I think your stitch pattern works great with the new sock, too.
