It's time for one of those questions from a new sock knitter.
So, I started my second pair of socks, and I am actually using a size 3 needle instead of a 6. And I am using some of the cool yarns that stripes as you knit. But when you are knitting a pair of socks how do you get the patternof the stripes to be the same on both socks.
What I am doing is starting on sock on two circulars, I knit so far on the first sock, then I work on the other one on another set of needles, work on it to the next step then switch back to the other. So in the end both socks get firsted at the same time.
Is there a way to keep the color pattern of the stripes the same? Or, do I have to have two skeins of yarn to work from?
