Noro Knuck


Been slowly working on this one. This is the Noro silk garden. I knit up the men's size and its a bit too large for my hand even! I have large hands and I'm unsure if I just wanna frog the whole thing or not...I mean, we need to be happy with our wares, right?
This silk garden looks really similar to the felted tweed.. Has anyone used both yarns to compare?

Silk Garden will shrink a little if you wash it. I make socks out of it all the time. Once you launder it, there's no frogging it.

Silk garden knits up at a much larger gauge than the pattern calls for; that's one reason why they turned out so large. I'd say frog and make the women's size; the adjusted number of stitches should give you a better size.
