I found the repeat!



I had to go just beyond the heel of the first sock before the yarn started to repeat. I usually have plenty of Sockotta left over, so pulled out yarn from the skein until I found my starting point for the 2nd sock. I'll keep the leftovers for some heels or toes or other embellishment.

I was so happy because I'm entirely too particular to have mismatched socks, especially with such an obvious stripe. This is Sockotta #605. I figure if I spend almost $10 and a week of my time, I want them to please the wearer, namely ME. These are not 'cheap' socks, although there are many more pricey sock yarns out there, so I made the extra effort.
