(we would sort out the details of size/style in the swap questionnaire so that, while the socks would be mismatched, they would at least feel similar when you're wearing them - thanks, Kaesea, for that idea!!).
Hmmmm? Did somebody say my name?
Yes, as a long-time mismatched sock-wearer, I would agree that we should use the same weight yarn and ideally create the same length sock (it feels weird to have one long and one short... also weird to have one thick and one thin).
I've never actually made a sock -- I make mitts out of my sock yarn and I always dread that second one. So making single socks sounds like it would be right up my alley. I don't know why I never thought of it before (since I only ever wear one of a pair at a time anyway!)
I hope that Dobby's fashion statement takes off -- I would love
to see more mismatched pair wearers out there.
