Why didn’t anyone tell me how much fun intarsia is? I was kind of under the impression that it’s a royal pain in the buttcheeks, but I just learned how to do it today and I LOVE IT! For the first few rows, I almost cried because it was really overwhelming. My friend who was knitting with me had to tell me to calm down and relax, because I was really stressing out!! Once I got a little bit of a rhythm and told myself that the little bobbins are just lining up in a row, waiting for their turn, it started to be really enjoyable!!
Granted, it may not be as much fun if you have 20 bobbins tangling on the back of your work, but I am having so much fun with these argyle socks. While it definitely takes away the portability factor of socks, I am getting so excited about how it’s going to look!!! So everyone, don’t be afraid to try intarsia! Even if it seems really hard after the first few rows, just keep focusing on the pattern and it’ll end up fabulous!
What do you think? I obviously haven’t gotten much done yet, but I already love them!!! And I thought I was addicted to socks before… this is just getting ridiculous!
