Without intending it, I have 2 pairs of stripey socks OTN now.
On the left, a pair of jogless stripes in Twisted Fiber Art yarn in the Roy G Biv gradation in 60% merino, 30% bamboo, 10% nylon. I’m striping it with some dark purple Shelridge Farms becuase the Twisted Fiber Art hanks are a little light on yardage.
On the right, the start of a pair of Broadripples in Knit Picks Felici in the Provence colorway. I got this yarn at least 4 years ago so the colorway is no longer available – but lots of great color combos are. The yarn is soft but still feels durable. The dye job isn’t quite perfect – sometimes I find a bare spot of yarn between the two colors, other times I find a speckle of errant dye mid-row. But for the price these are both forgivable.
This is the first time I’ve actually knit socks during Socktober in quite a while. My goal is to get at least one pair done. I also have a third pair in progress – a simple ribbed pair in Trekking for Paul. Between the three pairs I should really be able to finish off two. So one feels totally doable.
Famous last words, I know.
