I used one ball of Noro Kureyon sock yarn and had a LOT of yarn left over. There is plenty of yarn in the skein to find a repeat to match the first sock. But, the repeat lengths vary, as you can see in the pictures.
I tried as best as I could to start in the same spot, but even accounting for the fact that I might be a bit off in where I started, the repeats are just not the same. Look at the socks. I start off with dark green. What you can't see is there is a touch a yellow in the cast on row in both--so somewhere pretty close. Then look at that blue--the left sock has a very long blue and then periwinkle--the right socks blues are much shorter. But in the end, I think they match enough that I can wear them to work without getting strange looks.
See my mistake in the eye of partridge heel? There was no way I was ripping that back. I don't think it is very noticeable. Anyway, it makes the socks uniquely mine.

Although it took me 2 months to finish these socks, that was mostly because my main project was my sweater. I was working on these socks while avoiding the sweater, or travelling.
On other news--my first planted letterbox has been found. Very exciting. Unfortunately, it seems as though it needs some maintenance. I'll have to get to this week.
