Great looking pair of socks, so what if they don't exactly match. Just means that they are a bit eccentric, just like you.

The manufacturer is Schoeller Stahl. The only place online I've seen that carries a variety of the Sockina at a decent price is ebay...This HERE is the yarn I used for my socks, however, my LYS carries Sockina so that's where I get mine from. My LYS carries if for around $12.95, I believe, and it's on ebay for $1.00 more. The other online stores I've seen carry it for anywhere between $15.95-$19.95. I think it's definitely worthy of making its way into anyone's stash! Oh, and the yarn is a cotton, nylon, acrylic blend.

What a great looking pair of socks!

I think that matching the colors can be overrated at times. Sure, I myself am anal about it, but I think it adds personality when you don't try to match them!

I personally have never had a pair match up. I thought it was pretty cool how Demonica's matched so well :-)

Is there a problem with the cotton stretching out, or do the nylon and acrylic prevent that?

They have stretched out a little bit but I wonder how they'll be after washing. Since I followed Silver's Sock Class, (being only the second pair of socks I have knit up) I didn't worry about gauge or measuring. I probably could have done with casting on fewer stitches as the cuffs of the socks were a bit bigger than my ankle anyway. I feel confident enough with socks now, however, to follow a stricter pattern next time.

I knit a pair of socks for my nephew a while ago, using the same yarn (different colors) and they seem to have held up pretty well without much stretching.

I don't want to say definitely the yarn stretching is a problem until I knit a pair more tailored to the size of my ankles and feet though...lol...
