Have you ever tried to take a picture of your feet that shows the outside corner of each foot? I hope you've never had to, because I felt like I was failing beginner yoga while trying to take these shots . . . although they came out surprisingly well considering! I'm especially proud of the single-sock shot, it looks so professional, as if I had a foot form! (I don't, that's my actual foot)
These socks came out better than I expected, and the pattern really works even with this brightly-painted yarn -- which goes to show that you don't have to knit plain socks out of all your handpainted sock yarn if you don't want to!
I want to try these in one of the gorgeous semi-solids, too, I think they'd work just as well.
The diamond is easy enough to do without a cable needle, and would be a perfect project to try that technique for the first time!
I had a whole bunch of yarn leftover after knitting the smaller size, you could easily knit the legs longer than my 5" and have enough yarn.
