i finished these socks just the other day. they still need to be washed though, as silk garden (lite) doesn't feel that great until after a healthy dunk in the wool wash.
i chose to knit these toe up, as i wasn't sure how far a skein of this stuff (125m) would get me if i started with the cuff. once it was clear that a skein was plenty for a respectable socken, i decided to just knit until i ran out of yarn ....
specs: silk garden lite, col. 2011 lot A, size 3.25 mm dpns, 48 sts, short row heel, blah, blah, blah.
this too has been finished for a few days, and would had been finished last week if i hadn't stalled on the bind off.
this sock is a combo of knitty's falling leaves and diamante socks. i should go ahead and cast on for the mate, while things are still fresh in my mind.
specs: lorna's laces shepherd sock in tuscany, size 0 turbos.
oh, and i did cast on for something new (sock!)(duh!) yesterday ... but i can't show it here 'cause it's a christmas present for mom. but, if you're on ravelry you can go see it in my notebook ... under the name graylagran. it's brownish smooshy!
