OK — who spilled the coffee on my socks?

Well, no one, actually.

These socks are knit with Austermann Step sock yarn, with aloe and jojoba oil right in the yarn. The yarn was a dream to knit with, and the socks are comfy to wear. The colors remind me of mixed berry sherbet — all except for the BROWN spots throughout. ??? I just don't get that color combination at all. It looks like someone spilled coffee on my socks ( not that I would personally know what that actually looks like, you understand.)

Oh, well — they are so nice to wear, I'll just hide them beneath tall shoes and long pants.

And we'll just keep this coffee stain business to ourselves, OK? But if I ever visit the Austermann yarn factory spinning room, I'm gonna look for those messy coffee drinkers!

Here's the knit-in stitch marker for these socks. (It's a lampwork glass bead with a gold frog and a Swarovski crystal. All berry colors — no brown!)

You know, I think if you hold your mouth right, have the perfect number of stitches, and maintain the ideal gauge, those spots line up to spiral around the sock.

Yeah, I don't live in a dream world either. ;)
