The intarsia part of this sock was a lot of fun. In retrospect, I think it was a huge mistake to combine the worsted weight Debbie Bliss as the foreground with the fingering Jawoll as the background. It caused me great pain when I went to duplicate stitch the lines on, causing much unnecessary procrastination. Next time, I will intarsia up the whole damn thing, lines and all.
If you look to the left of the picture, you will also notice the lovely color gradiation in the foot. This actually isn't a dye lot issue; I had to switch colors as the old stuff was completely discontinued everywhere I looked.
