thank you ....

lolly ! thanks to you, i could not resist getting my hands on some silk garden lite, and knitting up a a pair of socks reminiscent of yours.


'tis the last day of socktoberfest. but, i think we all know i won't (ever) stop knitting socks ... not as long as there are beautiful yarns!

specs: silk garden lite colorway 2011 lot A, size 3 dpns, 64 sts, toe up, short row heel, knit until the yarn almost runs out and then use a kitchner st. bindoff.
note: this is (finished socken) how far you can go with a ball of silk garden lite ... one ball for each sock ... almost every last bit.

pretty! very unusual color way. And from the picture they almost look felted.
