First let me thank everyone for all of the lovely birthday wishes yesterday! Though I can’t help thinking that the best thing about turning 50 is that it’s better than the alternative…

Austermann Step socks

But one bright thing about my birthday was that I finished the Austermann Step socks! And I also cast on for yet another pair of socks for DH. Seems that perhaps someone’s sock mojo has decided to hang out at my place for a while.

But the question burning in my mind is, would it be evil of me to flaunt the stolen sock mojo along with my blooming lilacs?

Austermann Step socks

Pattern: My own – just basic stockinette socks. Eye of partridge heel, star toe, and 2×2 ribbing at the cuff. I started with 64 sts at the cuff, but decreased to 60 when doing the gusset.

Yarn: Austermann Step, colorway 10 – a gift from Carrie from her blog contest. Thanks Carrie!

Needles: US 1.5 (2.5mm)

    Oh! Happy Belated Birthday! Lovely socks!! I think it may be okay to flaunt stolen mojo… although it may lead to your mojo being stolen. I haven’t quite figured out how the mojo stealing works.

    If you figure it out, please let us know! 🙂
