There is nothing like trying to achieve a particular effect on TWO socks at the same time to reveal just how nit-picky you can get with your own knitting. After all, I probably could have just ignored the missing two rows, or slipped a two-row-repeat in to make up the difference. But I would have known the mistake was there and it would have bugged me forever!
Now I just have to decide if I'll frog (AGAIN) and try and get the striping right, or if it's just an artifact of the yarn and give in.
At this point I have finished one repeat of the pattern on the first sock, and a little over half of the pattern on the second sock, provided I don't rip it back to knit it tighter.
