My First Shortrow Socks














I was determined to learn to do shortrow heels and toes on socks.
After seeing someone recommend the book, Simple Socks
Plain and Fancy, by Priscilla A. Gibson-Roberts, I decided
to order it from Amazon and patiently waited for it to arrive.
I pulled this yarn, Austerman Step, from my stash and went for it.

It's really not hard, and I'm pretty pleased with how my first
pair of socks came out. I'll definitely try this again! By the way,
in case you haven't used this yarn yet - it's really kind on the hands
as it has Jojoba and Aloe in the yarn. They washed up nicely and
dried quickly - however, it's about 80 degrees right now here in
Southern California. When will I get to wear my socks????
