A Pair of Stripey Goodness

I finished the pair of socks that so graciously modeled for my Generic Sock pattern. These are made of Trekking XXL in color 134. US Size 1 needles were used. I'm pretty impressed at how perfectly these socks worked out. I measured where I was in the repeat when I began my first cast on and tried to match it up for the second sock's cast on - I think I did a pretty good job if it. This is the first time I've ever tried to match up self striping yarn (I don't use it much) and I'm glad to know it works.

I hope that everyone who celebrates the 4th of July has a great one! Those of you in other countries, have a great day too!

The socks look great! And I liked your five-part tutorial as well -- I even shared it with the "First Time Sock Knitters" Yahoo Group, as I imagine it would be helpful for them to see it.
