The KRL & KLL are where you pick up a loop from a stitch a row below, I find it easier than the M1, but what works for you is what counts. Yeah, 1 on each end of the same needle makes sense.

I found out Knitting Help has a FB page and checked it out and found this and I have to try them!

WOW, that's amazing! I had to show it to my daughter, and she got a good laugh out of it, too.

Yes, I'd forgotten about the increases where you lift a stitch from below. I'm more used to lifting the bar below, so I'll prob'ly do it that way. I should check out that FB page.

I think I'm in trouble, both grandkids want shark socks! They won't look quite the same but if I try them, I'm using worsted weight yarn! The nose looks like an afterthought heel. I've been trying to decide, was it done top down or toes up and which heel? I think it's a short row heel.

Probably toe up, but it might have been knit flat, then seamed. Otherwise, I guess the white heel could have been done with intarsia in the round and then short rows.

OMG I never should have shown that picture on my FB page. Not only do family members want shark socks, apparently my GD would love a pair of slippers/socks that resemble, of all things, pointe shoes!

Making the white work would be the challenging part for me. Well, the first challenging part.

The argyle in the round is killing me! The video tutorial only shows the increasing diamond, but the decreasing side just doesn't work the same. I've written to Interweave's customer support to see if there are any written instructions to be had. I'm also going to search again for instructions for intarsia in the round (argyle in the round is a subset). If none of that pans out, I'm just going to have to knit the legs of these socks flat and then seam them.

I'm sure you've searched and searched and read and read, but sometimes something pops up for someone else and because that happens I'm posting a link that might, just might, be helpful. Hand Knit Seamless Argyle Socks with Short Row Heels. You've probably already seen it but just in case.

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.

First pair of socks I ever made back in 1958 were argyle...a Christmas present for my dad. I knit the leg of the socks flat and seamed them. Couldn't even tell they were seamed. They were really warm socks.

Yep, I could definitely do it that way. I guess I'm stubborn, and I want to overcome this hurdle and learn intarsia in the round. I find seams in socks uncomfortable, which is one of the reasons I like handknit socks so much. If I master intarsia in the round, I can also make my socks with reinforced soles and seamless! How cool would that be?
