Colorful Socks
Here's my latest pair of socks. I decided to try the 2 circular needles method. I'm going back to DPN's! I ended up with ladders up the sides, no matter how tight I pulled those stitches. I also did short row heels, but I don't think they fit as well as heel flaps. But DS loves them and that's what matters!

Great socks! You did a good job of matching the stripes. I like doing socks on dpn's too.

Wonderful socks! Always try to keep a pair going, ususally tucked into my purse, if not in my hands.

Love the way you matched the stripes!

Nice pair of socks!! Is that a self striping yarn? As someone else said, you did a good job on getting the stripes the same.

Yes it's self-striping yarn. I always measure a make a note of where in the yarn I make the slip-knot for the first sock to get the stripes matched up.
