Sockapalooza socks are done!

Phew! Got this out of the way. I was worried that with all the fun things I am knitting and adding to my Ravelry queue I will not finish these on time for the first week of August. What worked in my favor is this lovely yarn! I love it! so pleasant to work with, and so much fun- what color will come next? It keeps ya' knitting. I decided not to cut the skeins to make them "match". I hope my pal is ok with that. I think next sock exchange should have this as a question: Do you like/dislike/either way fraternal twins socks. I happen to like it.
Zitron Life Style. 2 skeins. At 155m/50g, they're a touch short on yardage. Perfect in this case since I made a size 5/6 sock, but for my size 7/7.5 I'll need 3 skeins. What I want to make with the other color I have are gloves! Or a hat, double knit with an alpaca inner lining.
Addi US2: 2 on 2 circs. Over 60 stitches. leg part is a K4,P2 rib, to make sure it fits. Foot part- just stockinette. The yarn is so cool, who needs a stitch pattern? Just a basic sock pattern.

Very nice! I like my socks both ways -- just depends ...

They look fab. I rarely wear two socks the same anyway and think the slighly different look is way more interesting.

Very nice -- I love that they coordinate rather than match!

I love the other colorway too -- perfect for gloves!

I love that you make your socks fraternal twins. It's the Hila touch, and I imagine your sock pal would get a kick out of that.

I'm rather partial to fraternal socks also. Gotta love those socks.

Great socks! I really like the fraternal pattern. That other colorway will be wonderful as a hat or gloves.

Isn't the Ravelry queue addicting? Searching others FOs and Stashes, it's like the ultimate for inspiration AND enabling.

Great job. So many socks....And great idea: Double knit with Alpaca,,, that sound warm and soft! I dont get that Ravelary Queue, you can tell Im out of all the happenings on the net. So Ill dig in. Your site is so good in finding all this thing. Take care my friend.

Lovely socks and such warm and cozy colours. I never mind if the stripes in socks are not the at the same points, I always think this is a more 'hand-made' look and especially with a yarn I favour, I would also never dare to waste any tiny bit of it just to make the pair look mirrored. I´ve also took a look at the other colourway, and you are quite right, it would be great for gloves to brighten up the dark winter days.

Those are lovely! I would be delighted to receive those! (I like fraternal twin socks myself.)
