Failed Sock

I made this for the scrap pile

    About

    Started up knitting wonderfully. Assuming that there was a repeating pattern to the yarn print, I tried starting the 2nd sock on the same part of the pattern. My mistake. According to the customer service lady, there can be several different mismatching patterns on a single skein of yarn. Too disheartened to continue as I only noticed the half an inch of what I would call a missprint way too late in the knit.

      They look great, I knit lots of socks and have never worried about whether they match. Nobody's ever commented about them not matching either.

      That's weird as the yarn is meant to give a fair isle effect surely?

      I know you feel bad about the socks but you shouldn’t, they are beautiful! I’ve knitted loads with self-striping yarn and they never match perfectly but people love hand-knitted socks.

      They’re still lovely. Sunday socks ! Worn with big slouchy cardie 😍.
      I like wool to match too so feel your disappointment.

      That’s a shame, I think some sock yarns have a marker where you should start to keep the pattern matching.
