I finished Nettie's sock, my half of her birthday present. Working with the Austermann Step yarn was quite an experience. It is infused with jojoba and aloe vera, thus my finger tips always felt so smooth and even kind of slick. Throughout the process, I kept smelling my fingers (is that weird?) to see if there was a hint of lotion. And Camille was fabulous last night! The dark end of the spectrum of color was her senior year, not death. I hope the right teachers got her message loud and clear. You go, girl!
