Stripey is quite new and a little side project I've been doing in my downtime when I'm 'relaxing.'
It is knitted in seed stitch and I had all the yarn on hand from previous projects. I only knit in quality yarns so these are all manos del uruguay, rowan & morehouse farm merino. It is quite an unusual color combination choice for me but, I quite like the way they play off each other; the lights, brights and dark yarns seem to balance each other out. The stripes don't repeat in the same way either which I think give it a sense of spontaneity. Stripey is very textural and super soft. The stripes are uneven because of the different yarns- some are thicker or thinner than others.
It took about an hour and 1/4 to weave in the ends - the most tedious part of the project.
