This yarn started out in Idaho. I bought it in Coeur d'Alene last October. Now it's headed back to Idaho transformed into socks for son John to celebrate his March 18th birthday.
Hope he loves them. And hope he feels the love knit into every stitch.
Next family birthday sock recipient is daughter Heather in May. She asked for something in green. I have some beautiful Opal UNI-Solid green in my stash and I have this - Austermann Step yarn with Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil.
It's a rare day when I buy sock yarn that isn't Opal, but I couldn't resist this so soft and so pretty yarn.
Since I've never used Austermann yarn before, I may knit it up for myself to try it out.
