The other day I was hanging out in the medical school building, and two students walked by. The girl said to the guy, "Your socks don't match." He said, "Hey, they're fraternal!" and he lifted his pants legs to show her. I was soooo wishing they were going to be handknit socks -- I even had my camera with me -- but they weren't. It was just another anticlimactic blogger's moment.
They're very close, but careful DNA testing would reveal that they are not identical. Compare the bottoms of the two heels. And the stripes are ever so slightly different in a couple places. I even kitchenered the toes, which may not be a big deal for you, but hey, it's a very big deal for me. This video helped.
I'm happy that they're done, and that I finally made peace with the yarn. I like 'em. They're bright and warm, and did I mention? They're done. I bet you never expected it of me, didja?
