I'm working on my first pair of Argyle socks. I've done a bit of intarsia in the past, but not much. I'm more into texture and less into color. Mostly because color just scares the crap out of me. I have a terrible eye for it.
So I'm trying to wrap my head around this wrap the new color yarn. Most of what I've read says just wrap the old color around the new color...which is what I've always done. But I found this neat little video on http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques that explains not to wrap on left slanting colors and it actually makes a bit of a difference. So I'm ripping out the socks and starting again. Luckily I wasn't too far along. I guess that's the price I pay for teaching myself pretty much everything I know about knitting. Who knew there were more qualified people out there?
