I don't mind if my socks don't match if they're done in self-stripe yarn or if I happen to ever make Frankensocks. I'm also crazy enough to count rounds to make sure things are the exact. It's easy when there are pattern repeats but on vanilla socks....

Also, I don't know how I feel about this yarn. It lends itself to to a short row heel, which I'm not crazy about. Oh well.


I knit socks two-at-a-time and that helps a lot to get matching socks.
I love the Arne & Carlos esthetic, but I am also not a fan of short-row heels. Give me a heel flap and gusset, please. I would be very interested to see how this yarn works up with a heel flap and gusset.


I'm a heel flap knitter too, which is why I may just do a solid color for the heel flap and toe. I'm a fan of a contrasting heel and toe.


I go cuff down, heel flap and turn and a star toe. I have high arches and have had a bone taken out of the ball of each foot, leaving my feet a bit misshapen. I'm only 5'3", but have size 8.5-9 feet! My hands are tiny though!

I love crazy socks, and don't care so much about matching. If I wanted matching socks, I'd go buy a huge pack of Hanes at Target. Those are awesome for exercising. The rest of the time, colorful hand-knit is the way to go :)


Part of the beauty of a hand-knit pair of socks is having them not match!


I am a fan of Arne & Carlos yarn,have knitted many and even knitted a great scarf (used 3 balls) and turned out great. Love crazy colors for socks and the new above ones are wonderful,will grab a few to go with lime green running shoes!


I'm a little rebellious and intentionally make knit my socks so they don't quite match ;)

LOVE these! I don't much care about matching, but these just look fun!

I rarely make my socks match. I like the difference with hand knit socks. These are cute so I may have to try them but I like heel flaps or the strong heel.


I always do top down with a flap heel, also. I do wonder what these would look like with a flap heel. I think I will get some and see, the colors are just so nice. And I don't wear socks with sandals, anyway, so no one will see what the instep/ankle area looks like, unless I take my shoes off!
