Scarlett Gloss Socks

I have some new socks to show off today. I finished them last week, but didn’t get around to taking pictures for the blog because I was distracted by the Leftover Blanket and Dallas. (Love that they kept the original Dallas intro!)

The socks were knit from KnitPicksGloss in Scarlett. The yarn is 10% merino wool and 30% silk, and feels great. The pattern is the same faux cable pattern I blogged about back on May 7. It is definitely right up there on my list of favourite patterns. I still marvel at the cables made without a cable needle – fantastic!

Next up, I’m diving into a ball of Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn. I’ve always wanted to make something from Noro yarn. Since it is 27° out today, I’m thinking maybe I should get to work on a nice warm hat. Why must all the things I enjoy knitting be only suited for winter wear?


  1. What's wrong with a couple of Noro yarn g-strings undies for summer? Think outside the box woman!!

  2. I'm sitting here smiling, trying to come up with the appropriate response and I've got nothing. You've done rendered me speechless.
