It's the first of September and the weather here in Southern California is still warm. This is my third summer down here and I love the weather, especially in the winter but this summer has been a bit too hot for me. Anyway, the last thing on my mind is thinking about winter wear. But, since my real niche in knitting lies in knitting socks, I thought I would share my latest project with you.
I knit my first pair of socks probably about 12 years ago. I found a pattern and followed it - no classes or help. But, since I like to read and follow directions, it was fun for me to see how the sock came together. Since then, I have made many pairs of socks and one of my favorite yarns to work with is Noro yarn. Noro is a Japanese yarn and is known for its lovely shades of color. There are many different types of Noro yarns. These socks were made with Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn. I buy my Noro yarn from https://www.littleknits.com/index.php They have some great buys on Noro and other types of yarn.
These socks feature a cabled pattern. The link to the pattern is here http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/so-simple-silk-garden
The pattern mentioned above is written correctly and fool proof. I hate following a pattern and then it has errors. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post and maybe try knitting socks if you have never knitted them before. Happy Knitting!
