Almost there!


All the diamonds have been stitched and the criss-crossed black lines added--I'm almost finished with the argyle mini-sock!

Before finishing off the diamonds, I worked the toe in skip-tent stitch with the white Trio. Now I can go back and fill in the skipped stitches, as well as add the name and date.

Time to haul out the turbo needles--I have tons of painting to do and company is coming for the weekend!

Are some colors more prevalent than others in traditional argyll patterns? That thought popped into my mind as I was admiring your blend of colors. Very attractive. Mary Agnes

I love this color combination for the pattern.. masculine and festive for the holiday.

"Traditional" is the operative word here, Mary Agnes. I've seen combinations of colors I'd call "jewel tones" as well as more muted colors. You could easily use pastel colors interchanged with the ones I've used here to make a summery or "baby" look.

Like the sock and like the colors. Having family this week-end too. Still trying to finish carrots. Happy Easter.

I hope "turbo needles" are less painful than they sound!
