My First SKS, and first socks in 3 years!

.This is my first post to this blog, and THIS is my first pair of SKS! I'm a newbie sock knitter, but an addicted sock knitter. I took a sock class in 2004 at a LYS, but couldn't make a sock at home. A friend from church recommended this book...and here they are my socks...a basic K2P2 ribbing in a 4 stitch repeat in Austermann Step...I really like the feel of this yarn. I wore them today to our homeschool co-op, and showed them to literally everyone. Thank you for all of your helpful hints and sharing your gorgeous socks in the posts...they're very inspiring to me, and now I'm starting another (and more challenging) pair soon...after my Monkey Socks, that is. :) I can't wait to see the MSKS book that I have on order. Keep the pictures coming of your socks!

Great socks! So funny, I'm looking at your socks and then I'm looking at my hubby's feet, and he's wearing his Austermann Step socks that I knitted for him. His feet matches your post!
