Better Match


I'm knitting from two skeins of Red Heart (Heart and Sole - BlackJack #3972). I had no idea if I had wound the two balls with the stripes going in the same direction as I could not find the same striping sequence on the second ball.

Knitting began with the cuff pictured on the left. I liked the black band at the top, but the second skein would not cooperate. Finally, I decided to just knit - the sample shown at bottom right is the result, and then suddenly, I saw something similar and began again without frogging the bottom cuff - the result is a better match, but fate will determine if they resemble each other as I progress.

The bottom right cuff has been clipped and frogged: knitting on the second cuff will commence.
