Noro Silk Garden Knitted Socks

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  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

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!
