WIP - argyle socks...sorta

Here is the first of a pair of socks I’m working on. Not sure if it can be officially called argyle, but it’s close enough for me. The yarn is KnitPicks pallete, which I’m liking a lot.

I think they look nice so far, especially with them being your first. They appear to be in the same vein of argyle patterning to me (just the two color kind).
Are you using knitpicks’ circular needles, how are they working out for you?

Beautiful!!! :heart: I love the colors.

Those are cool!

That looks amazing!

I like the pattern. Colors are pretty too. :thumbsup:

Lookin’ good!

I’m a sucker for argyle. They look amazing!

Ok…so I just tried this on and…I can’t get it past my heel :frowning: Not sure what I can do. The stranding from the color work is preventing the leg of the sock from stretching enough to get past my heel. I’m really bummed. I don’t want to have to rip all of this out, but I can’t really see what else to do…

gift for a smaller footed person??

ORRRR, turn them into argyle mittens??

What a wonderful pattern!

Yum!!! I love argyle.

can you just not do the argyle pattern for the heel and use either the green or blue and do a solid heel and then you could match it or contrast it with a solid toe, just an idea. I think it’d look neat either way. Whatever you do, don’t frog it, that would bum me out. Pretty stuff!

Hilde, I thought of turning them into mittens, but I’d definitely have to gift them cuz my coat is orange and they totally wouldn’t match. I’m all for that, but I don’t know who I’d gift them to! They’re kinda big for any females I know and I don’t know any guys that would wear mittens of that color and design. I think I may have to frog it and start over.
