Stripedy stripes


Doespins Meridian self-striping yarnI showed you this yarn on Monday, fresh out of the mailbox.  Sometimes a yarn never even sees the inside of the stash cupboard.  So it is with this pretty self-striping number from Doespins.

Self-striping yarn, so pretty!  I particularly love the thick/thin take on the stripes.

With 60% alpaca content, they’re going to be one pair of very cuddly, warm socks.
