Notes

4/8/13 - I finished these on Spring Break and am wearing them today for the first time. Argyle is a different way of knitting, but not hard. Glad I practiced intarsia on dishcloths first, but the tangling wasn’t really bad. I want to make a pair for my husband now.

3/21/13 - I have picked this back up and am working the first heel. Notes for future ref: after 2 diamond repeats, work heel flap over stitches 2-33, leaving all other stitches (including the lone selvedge stitch) on another needle. I worked two rows in stockinette stitch in MC and then switched to the 3rd row of EOP stitch repeat (sl 1, {sl1 K1} K1). Sl 1 and purl on row 4, then begin the 4-row sequence. I did this because I wanted to anchor the yarn and then decided to do EOP. I will make a total of 32 rows in the heel pattern, then work a round heel, the pick up the gusset stitches and carry on. And when I start the second sock, I will need to reverse the layout of the diamond colors, and work the heel over stitches 34-65.

A new obsession begins. I am using Minerva’s Argyles as the basic pattern instruction but pulled up the chart from Moth Heaven for a 66-stitch, 3-color pattern. I’m also looking at Siskiyou’s instructions. I’ll be using Auburn for the main color, Butternut and Granny Smith for the alternating diamonds, and black for the diagonal lines.
