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.

I love Felici! It’s so so so so soft, but it also feels pretty durable.
This post make happy and beyond. You are doing brilliantly with your sock knitting. Yay, to using yarn that has been in your stash for a while!
Socktober, of course! This may be the push I need to finish up one of the pairs I have hibernating. I love the striped socks and am looking forward to how these turn out
