Another Pair of Socks

Stefanie’s socks, in Trekking yarn (I think). Size 1 dpns, garter rib stitch


Cathy should recognize this yarn. Thank you, Cathy!

When I first started knitting socks with self-striping yarn I couldn’t figure out how in the world you could ever get the socks to match. And at first I didn’t care if the stripes would match or not. BUT, then I realized or probably read somewhere, that you simply start the cast on at the same place in the yarn. For example, looks like I must have started where a stripe of gray ended and the stripe of orange began. I’ve had really good luck with making the right sized socks for people. When you buy socks at the store it’s pretty much a one size fits all deal. When you knit them, you can knit them to custom fit. Back when I was a kid, you actually bought socks by size. I don’t think the socks exactly corresponded to shoe size though. I can’t remember when it started being a one size fits all world.
