Egads, I feel behind already! Here is a picture of the yarn - I know the photo is not too good, but you can get some idea.
I have the ribbing done on both socks - I always do 2 at once so they will be the same length, etc. I am not so anal as to have to have the stripes/patterns on the yarn match, LOL. It really doesn't matter to me & I'm not sure this yarn would come out matching no matter what you did.
I really enjoy looking at all of your socks!
