First Noro Sock

I have completed the first Noro sock. The colors are pretty fantastic and they are photoing pretty true to color today in the sunlight. As you can see, the toe still needs to be kitchenered. Isn't that an incredible color at the toe? This is the mock cable pattern that I mentioned in a previous post. I like it; it's fun to knit and it does knit up quickly. You can see how I continued a cable down the side of the heel flap. There is some of the "thick and thin" business going on - the same as in the Silk Garden I am knitting entrelac. It doesn't really affect the look of the sock in any way that I can see.

This is just a different view of the leg of the sock to be able to see the colors.


This is about the best full shot that I could get. I am anxious to wash and block them when the second sock is completed. I know they soften some but I want to see for myself.


Close up of heel flap detail. More pictures will follow of the two socks washed and blocked.


Okay, on to the second sock. (I have been cheating on this sock and knitting another pair of socks from Trekking XXL for Todd. No pictures of that sock will be posted here as Todd sometimes checks out MIL's blog. You will be able to see them soon on Ravelry at Dhaymark.

I have a few things in queue to knit. When I do that, I find that I struggle to enjoy the knitting I am working on because I am so anxious to get to the next project. Since I really have no time constraints, I am trying not to do that to myself. Weirdness.

Wow, Debbie, those are gorgeous! I'm a sucker for Noro's colors anyway, but that blue is awesome! Like that cable, too!

Oh my!! I am so glad you shared your sock with me today - I will definitely use your pattern to knit my Noro socks when "my" color (188) arrives! You do lovely work and you chose a great pattern to show off the wonderful stripes while still keeping it interesting. LOVE it.

Awesome socks--I love that thread--I'm definitely going to have to get some of the Noro on my next trip to Twisted Yarns.
