Sometime last week I finished the leg of the first "mixing it up" sock.

It's waiting for a decision on heel color and style. Also, I like to work on two socks alternately, so that I'm done with both at more or less the same time. The total knitting time isn't any quicker this way. It just avoids that moment of "Oh, gee, now I'm going to have to start all over again."

I decided to start the leg of the second sock while Mr S and I watched videos on Saturday night. It really moved along, I was just about one stripe repeat short of done by the end of the evening. Except,

I forgot to stop ribbing.

Just when you think you have explored every possibility for goofing up your knitting, you find that you have not. Oh, gee, I guess I'm going to have to start all over again.

keep ribbing - that should really mix things up!

If it were me, I'd just frog back a bit. Many of my socks don't quite match...if I'm patterning on the foot of one I might get impatient to finish and stop/change it, but the other sock doesn't get/have the same treatment. Fraternal, not identical.
