Well, I finished the first diamonds, and I'm really happy with the way it's turning out.
Here you can see a complete diamond.
The sock will look more like this from the front.
So, yeah. Intarsia is a bit fussy, and it's definitely a bit slow, but it's actually kind of fun. My wife is really impressed with how they are turning out and now wants me to knit her a pair. I figure she can pick out the yarn at Stitches Midwest, which is in just over a week's time!
It's hot here, and I just got back from my 6 A.M. group cycle class. Ergh. At work today, we're having some weird outing with my boss's boss's team over at Navy Pier. I think I was supposed to bring my family or something, but, well... that didn't happen. Anyways, it's an excuse to get out of the office for a bit.
