Both socks are done! No second sock syndrome here. Whew ... That's one of the main reason I haven't made
any before. Do you want pictures? Of course you do!
Here are a picture of the toes. See how nicely the self-striping yarn lines up? Almost perfect .... and this coming from the Queen herself.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the look I was intending. You see, knowing that I'm a perfectionist, I didn't even attempt to start off the same (going for the fraternal look)
So how did I get the toes so perfect? Must be because one foot is slightly bigger than the other so the adjustment for that threw the pattern off. Anyway here's yet another picture of the completed pair. Just for the record, it took 2 days to knit these. One per sock.
And least y'all think that I'm neglecting
poor old Barbie, here's what's currently on my needles ...
Nearly done with this one. I may try to block the peach jacket. It's done in a lace pattern that isn't showing up too well.

Thats so cool they striped so perfect when you didn't intend them too. Love the socks.
Socks that ROCK!!!! they look great.
And about the fraternal thing--I love fraternals, and I am a perfectionist. Thats one of the hallmarks of handmade, that it is not matchy-matchy. Fraternal ROXS!
