Yikes, it's midmonth already (must knit faster)! It took five or six attempts to get the Rosedale sleeves to look like sisters. I think the sororal relationship suits Kureyon better than the fraternal (identical is a lost cause). As Ovid put it via Thomas Bulfinch: "Facies non omnibus una, nec diversa tamen, qualem decet esse sororum. Their faces were not all alike, nor yet unlike, but such as those of sisters' ought to be."
Meaning, the stripes are more or less aligned. Although the elder sleeve has more saturated color than the younger sleeve. And [cough] there's a couple more rows of corrugated ribbing on the younger sleeve. It doesn't bother me enough to... er, that's it!... my arms are different lengths.
Matching does seem to be the current challenge/obsession. This sock defied all attempts to get its leg and foot to match. (Plus I had to redo the toe several times, but that was Benadryl fog.) I knew the ankle would flash and rather like the shazaam pattern there. But I don't understand why the foot is so different from the leg and I daren't imagine what the second sock will look like. (I've always wanted to use daren't in a sentence.)
Ah well, sisters.
