Summer of Socks #3
Zen String Serendipity Sport
Magic Loop w/Size 2 KP Options
I had forgotten how fast sportweight socks knit up. I've got to dig through my stash for some more because these made a great travel and reading knit.
I was delighted to discover the arrival of the new Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn at our LYS today. The colors are amazing... so many to choose from and, like most Noro yarns, the color scheme can look totally different depending on which color is on the outside.
Today I felt like playing it safe. Plus I love the beiges and know it will go with so much. Someday. When I knit socks with it.
I picked up the Knitscene primarily for Wendy's Opulent Raglan. I love the cabled front and flared sleeves. But I won't be knitting it until my summer of socks and lace is complete. Most likely.
