FO: Super stripy socks – so many ends

This is the second pair of socks I’ve made from my secret santa present. The yarn came as a kit of four mini skeins (25g each) in different self striping colourways. I debated for a while about how to arrange the skeins but in the end decided to make them as stripy as possible. I worked one repeat of colours (3 stripes) from each colourway then repeated. Each sock has three repeats of the four colourways so 48 ends to sew in! I thought about working the stripes in the opposite order on the second sock but in the end decided to make a matched pair. They’re almost exactly matching – I got about one row off on starting the gusset and so the heels are slightly different.
