When I chanced upon two coordinating balls of pink Cascade Fixation at my local thrift shop, I knew immediately I wanted to do some funky striped socks and- thanks to Devon Clement- the pattern was already out there.

Also, not really a modification so much as an accident, I knitted them with the beginning of the round on the same side for each sock.
This wouldn't have been so noticeable if I had bothered with jog-less stripes but I very rarely do. I guess somehow I thought I could wear them both so that the jog is on the inside of my foot. You know, even though I have two feet, and the socks are identical?

It's extra hard to take pictures of your own heels.
The yarn is very comfy- very stretchy and quite soft. I'm keeping these ones for myself, because they seem too imperfect to give away and I love them so much I couldn't imagine giving them to someone who thought mis-matched socks were weird. Plus I'm very interested to know how well this yarn wears when mis-treated, so that when I do give some away I know what to tell them. (By mis-treated I just mean washed and dried like a regular ol' sock.)
Hee hee, did you notice that I took extra pictures today to make up for the fact that I have only one FO? I promise my Sunnyside Cardigan will be done very soon: ever since I split for the armholes it's like it's been knitting itself!
Check out more FO's with Tamis Amis.
