Sock It To Me Monday: Sock Number 2

After finishing the first sock I immediately cast on the second one. Well, not immediately exactly. I knew my socks would never match. I didn’t bother to pay close attention when I cast on the first sock. When I was ready to cast on the second one I had a crazy idea. I decided if the socks weren’t going to match anyway I would intentionally make them not match by rewinding the remaining yarn so that the order of the rainbow colors would be in reverse. So I cast on and what you see above is what I’ve gotten done.

    Match? How do you tell your right from left then? Life needs more happy mismatches anyway. Look great!

    Great yarn and sock idea. I never had a match plus my granddaughter told me “they shouldn’t match mamaw” perfect so this is my motto (at least for me)

    Your knitting is so beautiful, each stitch so perfect

  7. I usually do that. I also like to use different designs for each sock.

    I deliberately bought myself some pairs of “odd socks” so I’m with you on the socks not matching!

    My self-striping socks never match (I’m lazy). But this is a great way to make it so people can tell you did it on purpose.
