Two down, two to go

Here is pair number two of the xmas socks.  I bought three 50-gram skeins for these, but since I was doing nothing fancy, used only two of them.

Identical twins!

Pattern:  Four-Stitch Ribbing Patterns, from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn:  Cascade Yarns Sassy Stripes
Needles: US1
Modifications:  Used a 1x1 rib stitch instead of a 2x2 one

After nearly matching stripes on the last pair of socks, I decided to try matching them this time.  Of course, before I could even get sock #2 cast on, I came across a splice.  I retried, though, and ran into no more splices.  Whew!

Wow! Great job! So far, I've never been able to produce matching striped socks. I came close once, but that was completely by accident.

Nicely tailored socks. Good on you for getting a head start on the Christmas rush.
