I decided to make my socks match, more or less. I'm working on both socks at the same time on two separate sets of double-pointed needles. I do ten rows on one sock, then with the same yarn I knit ten rows of the second sock. What I'm not doing is trying to match the stripes up so that they are identical. If the yarn is variegated, then I take it as it comes, so I may be starting with a different color sequence. The socks will be the same, but different!
Two more stripes and then I'll be turning the heels. The Ravelry group deadline is June 30th. I think I'll be finished in time. I hope so.
