DBF Gift

DBF went somewhere cold (Mainland, Lots of knitters and wool shops and the like!) and brought me back a present!
Austermann Step Superwash wool and nylon. The yarn has Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil in it: I'm not sure if it just makes it smell nice or if it makes your skin smooth too? I think it's self-striping, too! What an awesome man who buys me sock yarn!

What a great gift from your DB. I still have to try this yarn as I've only squished my friend tapmouse's sock in progress.

I have yet to see anyone in blogland say how long the aloe & jojoba will last in the sock, but it apparently does make the knitting process really nice.
