Lincraft yarn is beautiful and soft to knit with, but I found that I had to use #11 needles (English dpn's)equivalent to 2.75mm as anything smaller made them too tight. Plus it is nigh on impossible to match them up and SSS was setting in, even before I had reached the toe decreasing on the first sock! So I just" bit the bullet", ploughed on and hoped for the best, so was surprised that they matched up as well as they did. Only consolation was that I had decided, that they were going to be for me, regardless of the outcome! I nearly got them matched though didn't I? Thanks everyone for looking.

Hummm no they are not really matched...the cuffs are about 4 rows short when I started the 2nd sock, so I was surprised to see how close they actually were. The colourway of the yarn is so hard to sort out, as shown in the photo of the yarn before I started to knit from the middle with it, and to find a matching "beginning" is impossible. But I was happy with the end result and although not perfect, it will do me.

I agree and thank you so much. I chose to have Fraternal Twins this time rather than Identical Twins... but I nearly made them identical and missed slightly.
