Hi Ronda --

I'm probably not the right person to ask since this is my first pair of socks and I picked a yarn that was nearly impossible to match up!

BUT ... with most sock yarn, there is a definite pattern, and you just make sure that you start with the same color with each sock, or perhaps use a new ball for each sock, because I believe that each ball should start out the same.

If any of you experienced sock knitters would like to trump my answer here, please go ahead!

Both projects are awesome!

Personally I don't mind when the socks don't match. I like the fraternal rather than identical look.

Socks and Bag
Wonderful colors!

I'm making some self striped socks myself that don't match - even a 54 year old can get funky!

And I must add - YEAH! STEELERS!!!!!

DotMom61: Thanks for the reply on how to match up the socks. I cannot wait to try my first pair. I'm going with Silver's tutorial. I have LOTS of sock yarn, too! ;-)

I didn't notice the socks didn't match 'til I read it.
First pair, you say??? You wouldn't tell a fib, would you?


That bag is beautiful!!!

Never!

But, really, these were my first pair. I've knit most of the way through other socks, but I never got past the heel for one reason or another. Now I'm hooked, and I can't wait to do another pair, which, incidentally, I need to have done by Friday! ;-)


And Thanks, everyone, for all the nice compliments!!!

Matching stripes is so 2005, much better this way :rofling: seriously great job on the socks tho, did you use DPNS or circ's?
I particulary like the design of the bag, great colours, really interesting way of doing the handles...
