I just found the pattern for these socks over at Knitty and I am in love. I don't know if I will ever make them, but they are awesome. Here is a direct link to the bmp sock pattern. I might try one of the suggested alterations which is just to use a different stitch, instead of a second color of yarn. That technique would show the pattern as a relief, and be harder to see from a distance, but far easier to manage. Who knows, there are entirely too many patterns that I adore for me to be able to complete them all.
