Striped Socks For #1 Son

#1 Son thinks that pairs of socks with different stripes are cute (and I agree with him). So thinking that these stocks would stripe differently and randomly, I made no attempt to match the yarn up. I just grabbed the ends from the center of each ball and started knitting. Meilenweit outsmarted me by having the skeins start and end at exactly the same place in the color repeat.

These were knit two-at-a-time, toe-up in Meilenweit Cotton Fantasy #801 on a pair of Addi Turbo US#1 circular needles. The toe and heel are both in Eye of Partridge stitch. The foot is stockinette stitch. The cuff is simple 4×2 ribbing.
