Yes, I actually started out thinking I'd use that pattern, but I didn't care for how the short-row diamonds look (they seem a bit lumpy to me). I haven't given up just yet. Today, I did a search for "intarsia in the round" and found a couple of tantalizing tutorials. I won't have any time to knit for the next few days, so I'm going to wait before I try some more swatches. Meanwhile, the would-be argyle socks are having a time out in the corner.
