FO-Mini Mochi Socks
Not thrilled with the results. They are very soft, but this yarn was a bear to work with on size 1's. It is EXTREMELY splitty. I didn't care for the variation in striping on the different balls either. Even if I had managed to start both socks with the same color they still would've looked totally different because the striping was so much wider on the one ball. Oh well.

Very nice! Too bad the yarn was difficult to work with ... but I think you did a great job!

mini-mochi socks
WandaT, those socks are beautiful. I have made several pairs of socks using self-striping yarns, and only one pair has come out with both socks the same. After trying to start with the same color space on the yarn, and having to 'waste' lots of yarn, just decided I could live with fraternal, rather than identical 'twin' socks. Socks don't show much anyway when you have shoes on!!! linknit41

Those are the kind of socks that you can't help but feel happy when you wear them. They are so colorful and perky! Nice work!

Sorry they were such a pain to knit, but the look beautiful! I love the colors, and they look so soft and warm.

I just looked up mini mochi yesterday and it said that it makes fraternal twin socks. I did make a pair of socks that turned out that way. I didn't like them very much. I do love yours, the color is just wonderful. They're keepers where the and smile.

They look great Wanda! I think perfectly matching socks are over-rated

I think they're gorgeous !! I've done several pair of striped socks and I think the stripes only worked out similarly on one pair - and that was the City Socks self striping.
MiniMochi is all the rage at my LYS right now - seriously, new colors sell out the day she brings them in so I haven't gotten any yet.
