The man of the place also likes these socks. You'll notice the toes are a little different. That's because I knit them to be proper for the left foot and the right foot. They don't interchange, being anatomically correct. I really just started decreasing on the big-toe side later than on the little-toe side so that the space for the big toe would be longer and wider. He hasn't knocked a hole through the toe yet, so the concept seems to work. These are knit from Austermann Step, that curious yarn with softeners like aloe vera added. It is indeed a very soft yarn, but be forewarned that it tends to tangle and knot during the knitting process. I suspect it's because of the added ingredients.
