So cute. Does it really stripe that perfect or do you have to start at a specific place, like you gotta make sure the blue is facing you as you cast on or somethin? :??

I PM'd amy because this forum is a bit wonky still--you also can't see pics if you're logged out (at least I can't).

Kel, that set is gorgeous! I love the look of the striping sock yarn, too. It makes the set look so much more complicated. Very cool! :thumbsup:

Yeah...its acting a bit weird. Itll be fixed soon, Im sure!

Femmy, you DO have to cast on at the same point in the yarn pattern. But when you do, it really does stripe that perfectly!

Id be curious, though, to find out if other brands of yarn have the same problem I had....In every skein of the KPs Simple Stripes I used (4 all together for both baby sets I made) there was always a break/knot somewhere, and they didnt bother to match it up at the same point in the patterning. I wasted alot of yarn because of that.

Kelly, you did a wonderful job on your set. I can't believe you had so much trouble with the KP Simple Stripes. When rolling it I didn't find a single knot in either of my skeins of Crayon.

I just love this! Those socks are the first things I thought of when I found out my baby sister was pregnant! I'm gonna have to make those!

Great job Kelly!
