Can you or would you use Noro for socks? The one that I have is not very soft, but I love the color. "silk Garden" 45% silk 45% kid mohair and 10% lamb wools.
When you do a search, is there a way to see the PAGE the answer might be on without having to look at all the pages?
When I do a search not knowing what Forum it might be under, I will look under all of them. When a thread has 3 page it will list all three. If it under a Blog, some Blog have 500 pages.. How do you just go to the page?

Don't know about the Noro for socks. I'm not familiar with that yarn.

I would opt for a stronger yarn for socks myself but they would make lovely snuggling with a WIP-cuddling on a cold winter night-house socks. Silk Garden tends to be a weak yarn in general and isn't very hard wearing so I would suspect they would wear out quickly.
How about fingerless mitts. Or if you're into it, leg warmers?

Queen, I was working on some sock yesterday and when I pull on the yarn to get it out of the hole it broke. and after reading what you said.. I think I will make gloves.
Nobones, I do have some yarn wating for me to make them into sock.. So I can't wait to get your pattern.
