wild tigers in the bellybutton

if i have to knit vanilla sox, the least they can do is match! right?! yes, i am THAT way about my socks; gifts or not! so, may i present my vanilla sox with a touch of tiger.....


here are the legs. ..

MATCH!

the heel flaps....

ABOUT AS IDENTICAL AS THEY COME!

the foot....


BINGO!

i expect pooling BUT can't the colors pool in the same spot?!! arg-g-g-g-h!



maybe i can tell the recipient that there is a definite right and left foot ....sigh

what should i do with the "wild tigers"? leave them or visit the frog pond? i am so wanting to frog them. i know where the colors went off. it was just a little bit. i didn't expect it to cause such a WILD difference!

so, while the tigers were being timed out for bad behavior, i made my hubby a pair of these...

he decided sunday afternoon that he could not live without a pair of fingerless gloves. i started these babies on sunday at 3 pm and finished them on monday at 10:30 am. he's gone off to work today very happy!

Ummm... I love the tiger socks just as they are. No two tigers are exactly the same!

I would leave the tiger socks as is. They look wonderful.
