silk garden socks


well here are my finished silk garden lite socks. i absolutely love them. i did shorten the tan color band a bit by breaking off the yarn and starting again at a further point because i really wanted the green to be on the leg portion. other than that, they were pretty simple. i cast on 44 stitches on size 3's and just did a basic sock. i think they are my favorite pair to date, although they aren't my most practical as they don't fit into a standard shoe :) they are colorific!

I bought two balls of Silk Garden Lite last year to do the same thing - I wanted socks, and seeing your lovely pair makes me want to cast on right now! Did you use 2 balls (or more?)
I think my colorway is even the same one as yours!

I *just* finished a pair of these in the same exact colorway! LOL Aren't they fun? Mine fit in clogs, but not much else. Oh well, they're still fun to wear.

You did an excellent job getting the two socks to match up-a tough job when using self striping yarn. (And what a fast knitter you are, too!) I can't wait to see what you make with the Yarntini yarn-sooo pretty!

I just love how you matched up the colors. Nice work. I'm a huge Noro fan, too.

Your blog is delightful.

Very pretty socks. I've never used Noro, but now I'm tempted to try!

Beautiful! This is a little off the subject, but I really need to knit some socks on something other than size 1 needles. I need a quicker knit.

Those socks look great and so warm. They're exactly what I need to wear at night so I stop waking up when the heat goes off.
