I'm knitting Thuja from knitty for my sister (see my sig for a link) and I'm wondering, when making the second sock, do you count rows? or do you just measure inches? I read in one knitting book that you should count rows to make sure that both are the same, but then again that was talking about sleeves.
I'm on my second sock and I've done more rows on this sock than on the other one, but it's just the same length. Should I rip back, or move on to the heel flap? I don't want two socks that are mismatched. (and, this is the first pair that I've made as a gift, hell the first pair I'll be finishing, I want it to look good)
