Stripe Study

Pattern: Stripe Study by Veera Välimäki
Yarn: Miss Babs Yummy Superwash Sock in Catherine, Newsprint and Luna Granite, The Perwinkle Sheep Watercolors II Sock in Silver Lining and Suits Him
Needles: US6 Addi Turbos
Notes: My original plan was to use four different colors, two grays, a blue and a blue-green, for my contrast stripes. But I lost the green shade on my vacation. Instead I pulled more grays from my stash and I think the result is better than my original idea. This pattern is fantastic. It's so easy to knit and kind of like a game as you go. It's nice to wear too with the one long wing to wrap around. I loved making it so much I immediately launched into a Color Affection.
