argyle socks

An experiment in pooling. I loved the colors in this Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport yarn (color name: "Argyle") so much that I decided to throw caution to the wind and just knit it up and see what it did. It pooled in a fabulous "shazaam" stripe down the front! I did a little work (adjusting gauge and removing color sections) to keep the red flash in the front, then did the heels and toes in a contrast color, so as not to interrupt the flashing. I think they're crazy cool!
