Like I said in my last blog, I knit my socks in tandem, and here I have a pair of heels. What I love about doing my socks this way is that I don't forget if I made any changes to how I was doing one heel and if I liked something about one heel, the other will be nearly identical. And they are identical, in everything except the striping.
Sometimes I get really picky about the striping and spend a whole bunch of time making sure I start each sock in exactly the same place in the color repeat so that the socks will be industrial identical. But with a fun, no make that "happy" colorway like Sailor Stripes, I just want to knit it up, and I don't care if my socks don't match. In fact, I rather like seeing all the possibilities as to how the striping will look. Or at least two ways.
Now, down the foot. Then down the other foot. Question: Are you particular about striping?
