Do you knit socks now? You can certainly knit mismatched multi striped socks in what ever colors you want!There are many beautiful self-striping sock yarns available. Pick two different skeins and go for it. Or, use the matching skeins, but let the yarn start in different places in the skein so it's the same color, but stripes differently. If I buy a 100 gm gall, which makes me two socks, I use a kitchen scale to weigh it (sometimes it says 100 gms, but might be a bit over/under), then re-wind it into two balls and match my ends, then start both socks at the same time so I get them to match almost exactly. It also helps me keep about the same gauge on both socks! If you buy a 100 gm ball and want it to stripe differently, just start each sock in a different place in the pattern of the yarn.
