FO: Argyle socks!!!
Hey everyone! I started these socks back in the fall, but I ran out of the navy blue yarn and had to keep them in hibernation until I could get to my home LYS and get some more. I got it over Thanksgiving, and finally finished them!!! I am so proud, and I love the way they turned out!!! It's my first intarsia project, and while it's not my favorite thing, I love the effect of these socks. It's an awesome vintage pattern that I got from the knitting teach at my LYS.

Stats: Knit on Knit Picks 2.25mm (Size 1) sock needles, with Universal Yarn's Pace in Navy, Pewter, and a cream color. Used duplicate stitch, for the lines, with Knit Picks Essential in Grass and Violet. All the info is on ravelry if you wanna check it out. Let me know what you think! :D

Those are incredible! My DH would like me to make him some, but I told him I'd make him some nice striped ones with self striping yarn!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Beautiful! Argyle used to be the test of a good knitter. I've never tried to do it myself. You did a great job.
