Another FO...

So the schoolgirl socks are done. This project is so disappointing. The socks are different colors - more evident off then on, but I know so it sucks. On the upside, they fit amazingly! I love the way they feel on - good thing I have lots of tall boots. And my short row heels are getting better, but you can still see the little lines of o's. Maybe after I wash them, they will be better... At least I now know that I can make tall socks - next time, I will try two socks at once...

The first thing I thought when I started reading this was, "Maybe after they are washed or blocked?" And then you typed that too! I hope you try it, it might work. Though really, when they're on you can't see a difference at all!

That sucks. But, they look pretty great otherwise.

I think they're super cute, sucks that they don't totally match though.

with boots, you'll totally not notice the slight color difference. . . well, OK, YOU will, but no one else will, so don't stress about it :)

Are they different colors because you had to use different skeins? That happens in the handpainted yarns (which is what that looks like). Otherwise they are awesome!! I am doing 2 socks at once right now, though it seems tedious, I am sure I will be happy when I have a PAIR and not a lone sock!!

I agree. The socks look great. You really can't tell that the colors are too off though. Maybe washing the darker one will make it fade to the other. ? Maybe? They do look awesome though!!!
