bord de la mer socks

Hello friends!
Yes, according to me it's still "Socktober!" Yay!
Here is another sock design I have been working on today. The little scallop design is made using a fair isle knitting technique, which doesn't seem to be all that suited to sock knitting (there must be an easier way!!!?)
The reason it's not particlarly suitable for sock knitting is that it doesn't have a lot of stretch... I can only *just* get these socks on my little feet (and I do have little feet), and the other reason this technique isn't so fabulous for sock knitting is because of all the little threads carried along the inside (or back) of your work (sock) which means that they are *really* tricky to put on without catching your toes in all the little threads.
Do you know a better way of knitting colour patterns such as this into socks?? Share in the comments!
P.S. Despite their impractical nature I still adore these socks!
