Yup, Knitting.

Aren’t these pretty?

I can’t stop looking at them. I couldn’t stop knitting them either. I started them on Tuesday,and finished them on Saturday.

Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Lite. Yes. Lite. Noro has come out with a lighter weight version of their fab Silk Garden, one of my all time favs. I’ve always wanted to knit socks out of silk garden, so I saw this yarn as a perfect opportunity. Color # 2014. 2 Skeins.
They feel just like Silk Garden, and are very soft!
Needles: Addi US 2 (3mm) 32″ Knit one at a time, Magic Loop Style.
Pattern: None, really. Just my standard Toe Up, with Short Row Heel.
I can’t recommend Toe Up socks enough. This is all the yarn I had left over:

    Beautiful socks! Two questions for you…how many skeins and how do these socks feel? Scratchy?

  5. Suzanne says:

    Wow! Those are incredible! Two skeins, not bad. Is there a lot of veggie matter in the skein like regular Silk Garden?
    Noro socks! What more could you want??!!

    Oh my – those are loverly! Sweet monkeys, why didn’t anyone tell me that they make Silk Garden Lite? (Although I doubt that I would be as clever as you and knit socks with it.) But now it is definitely on my “list.”

  18. Bonne Marie says:

    Ahhh! I *must*knit this! Ahh! Ahh! Freaking beautiful socks!

  24. Lola says:

    Love those socks! Love everything about them! Especially the amount that you have left over. Can’t stand left over sock yarn. I always make mine toe-up, but not quite sure where to put the increases (to minimize that dreaded left over amount & all).

  25. Kaity says:

    I love those socks.

    I gotta find me that yarn!!

  26. Wannietta says:

    Without hesitation yes, they are very pretty. I must say that I am a Noro fan and a lighter weight SG … SOLD baby!!!
