We had a knit along going for these that you might pick up some tips in.
But I seem to be the only one who stuck with it.

2 x second sock syndrome!!!

You could just wear the first different colored pair and tell everyone you like them so well you're knitting another pair just like them!!!

Works for me!

This is awsome... I can't wait to try it. I do have a dilema - I just started a pair of toe up's last night and now I want to frog it so I can start them again with this method.... maybe I'll try a sample set in scrap yarn (Lord knows I've got plenty) to get my technique down first. Ohhhh, I'm so excited. Can't wait to get started. Need to buy chocolate or make cookies first... I'm gonna need it.

Thanks for sharing the links... Just when I thought I couldn't learn anymore techniques. I'm excited, I just love learning new techniques.

Wouldn't that be a cure for SSS if we could make it a fashion statement. I have found so many sock patterns I like that I have run out of room in my sock drawer. If I could make just one sock per pattern, I could make them all and enjoy 1 design per foot.
I like it.

They'll just think you're a hip kid if you were different socks.
Punky Brewster all grown up.

Doing them like this still could result in the 2nd sock thing. Your second one could be stitched different or be a different gauge from a different mood.

Mike, I bow down to you just b/c you're able to do this. And my dd would get a kick out of the Punky Brewster thing - she just discovered that show and LOVES it!

I'm in the middle of a pair of toe-up socks but for my next pair - look out!

My daughter and indeed the whole of her tap class used to wear odd socks to tap class. Maybe I should make odd socks for her. Might need to practice socks a bit first . Have nearly finessed my very first pair of socks, toe up , two at a time on 2 circulars . Going well so far. Just got to cast off rib cuff and then do the after thought heels. Am thinking socks could be my next " addiction".

Odd socks would also be ok as camping bed socks. Going to make more of the socks am making now as perfect for hiking as no seams at all so reduces chances of rubbing
