Great work, I love the colors! It looks like you’re accidentally twisting your stitches. [Here](https://www.reddit.com/r/knitting/comments/2u2tdv/nefs_short_guide_on_twisted_stitches/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) and [here](https://www.reddit.com/r/knitting/comments/f0rocc/stockinette_a_tutorial_on_6_different_textures/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) are two really great posts that people have made on this sub previously explaining how twisted stitches might occur and what you can do to avoid doing this unintentionally in the future. If you did twisted stitches on purpose, then carry on, this is just a very common knitting problem that I had myself to begin with.

I love self-striping yarn and there are so many great dyers these days. The ladders get better with each sock. The common tip, which I am sure you know, is to pull the 2nd stitch knit on the new needle tight. I actually end up having tighter stitches there, but it's better than a ladder! Good luck!

i found that for some reason when i added in the new yarn after the cuff the ladder completely disappears! i've been doing that tightening-the-second-stitch technique too! super excited with my sock knitting progress!!

That's great! Socks are a great summer project. Have fun!
