To Match Or Not To Match?

Several weeks ago I posted in my Facebook Group and on Instagram asking sock knitters if they prefer hand knit socks to be identical twins or fraternal twins?

They’re sisters, not twins (or fraternal twins, as some knitters like to call their slightly mismatched socks). This doesn’t bother me at all. Having each sock be slightly different, yet at the same time feel the same makes them interesting to me. Also, I learned a long time ago that striving for perfection in life isn’t great for my mental health. How do you feel about matching socks? Do you prefer them identical or fraternal?
