Stepping on

I've finished my Austermann Step socks, and I love them. Started them last Saturday night, and cast off and sewed in the ends at 10 last night, so they really did go quickly. And now I get to wear them today — yay!

On the needles now: Knitpicks sock memories (red hat, which is a lot more purple than shows in the photo), in the free Cable Twist Socks pattern from Hello Yarn. I started these at 10:30 last night, and I'm just a few rows away from the heel already. Let's hear it for thicker yarn and #2 needles! I was worried that the colourway would obscure the pattern but in fact, it enhances the pattern.

And here's a nifty design tool: generate a PDF graph paper chart, of whatever size grid you like. Handy for if you wanted to design your own patterns.
