the latest socks

These are done on size 1 US, toe up, 2 at a time. Trekking XXL from Astrid and I am annoyed with the yarn! Notice that the socks don't match? I tried 3 times to find the repeat. I have about decided there is none. One entire sock appears to be heathered while the other has some heather and some more solids. this is from one skein, weighed, re-wound (3 times, did I mention that already?) and finally I gave up. The socks fabric is nice and manly, which was the goal. Guess who they're for...(GINGER!)

I think you're right, there doesn't seem to be any repeat. I had a similar problem with a yarn called Sisu Fantasy (from Sandnes Garn), though that yarn was, I think, even weirder. Just look at this:

Repeats or not, they are still cool. Yea for knitting on needles that small. (I know you do it all the time, but I do not. Therefore it is a feat to be praised.)
