Remember my Winterscape Scarf?
These Socks are similar in colorway, but not the same as the scarf. They blend nicely, though.
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Sock - Colorway #S269
Pattern: My own, again. See link for free pattern at sidebar.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments: Well, since this is my 8th pair of Noro socks, I've pretty much knit with most of the Noro sock colors--at least all of them that I favored, which leaves out very few. It's time to come out with new colors, Noro people! How about a blend of blues in the same vein (almost solids)? Or green? Or red? Or yellow? Pink? Gray? Is anyone at Noro listening?
If you knit socks with Silk Garden, you need to be aware that each 100 gram skein has only 300 meters of yarn, and that's on the skimpy side for socks. However, with the coloring as the star feature of this yarn, you might want to choose a sock without too much patterning. These are knit top down for a size 9 foot, and see how little yarn remains! Also, it would be virtually impossible to try to match both socks in this subtle colorway, so I went with fraternal and am liking the results.
Of course, you can't take just one photo of your Noro project. There's just too much depth and wonder in their colorways.
