I LOVE those socks! I'm such a dork when it comes to color knitting/intarsia/fair isle type stuff but those almost (almost) make me wish I could.


That sock is positively gorgeous!!! Grrr, they just made it on my to-knit list.


I cannot stand how much I love those.

Also, best mom with the torture and the ultimate reward. LOVE.


Those look great - please bring them tonight so I can properly ooh and ahh over them!


They are so cute, I want to eat them! Well, not really, but the really are great.


I love the colors you picked...I can't wait to start knitting a pair! I can see why DMC is "jonesing" for them. (what a gloriously bad and good pun!)


I gotta make me some of those!

That does it. I've been assimilated.


i love them.


Those are fabulous! They are also making mine look quite sad in comparison...I love the black background and white Jolly Roger. I am definitely going to have to do a second pair.


*lol* Those are too funny! I must be sure never to show them to my son, he's sure to ask for a pair and until he learns to take better care of his things, he's not getting hand knit socks (at least not something that complicated).


Love the socks - SO cool :o)


Oh,you sooooo rock Julia! Love...those...socks!!!!!!


Ah jeez. I should know better by now than to declare "I will never knit [fill in the blank]." Really, it's the description of the fiddliness and the march of the yarn across rows that tells my brain, "it's worth it. cutest skull & crossbones ever. you can do it. why not???" etc. dumb brain.


It's so much fun "watching" you knit these argyle socks! Bet it's even more fun to knit some...and no - you're not a masochist you just love a challenge.

BTW - would you post what yarns you are using for each pair? Sorry if you've already done this and I've missed it...


Love 'em. Must have 'em. When I get home.


Those are great. I must search the stash for appropriate yarn. I need to wear them on the next "Talk Like a Pirate" day.

Crap! I just looked it up, it's September 19th!


As soon as the superwash merino roving I ordered gets here, I am going to dye and spin the yarn to make those. I just have to decide which colours to use. And if I should give them to my dad or keep them for me. So far, I haven't been able to part with any socks made from handspun.


They really do look great. Now I'm sort of regretting my decision to "go straight."

Oh, the mother points you are going to earn... :-)


I love bare naked honesty. (More google searches)


watching you do this is indeed FUN.


Oh, I am In Love with those. Divine!


While not a huge fan of the whole argyle kitting thing, these are very cute. I love how those are turning out. The colors are great.
