I call these my Insanisocks, because OMFG the focus and determination required to knit them.  But, the pattern is actually Priscilla Gibson-Roberts' Bazaar Socks (they were a free download from Knitting Daily, but I had downloaded them a looong time ago, so I don't know if they're still available).
I used Knit Picks' Palette in the three, solid greens and purples.  There's over half a skein of each left over, so you could make a second pair if you haven't lost your mind yet...  Or maybe you had if you're planning on making a second...  Anyway, WHEW!  I need a java!

Amazing. I love these. It would take me 25 years to make those correctly working on them everyday! And they would last about a week. I would frame them.

Hmmm, I started them in June, but they turned into an "in between projects" project.  Just something to work on when I finished something big and got bored of said big projects.  There was a really long break in August, I don't think I touched them at all that month.

This is me tipping my hat and bowing in front of you.  I'm so impressed!  Wow.  I'd never have the patience....never... even though I've probably made 100 pairs myself. 

I must say I am relieved to see that the right and left sock are not identical in pattern.  If I had to match such intricate patterns exactly, I would jump off the nearest cliff.

Kudos!
