Still Striping

My new thing with stripes has not yet abated. I’ve added some things to the shop, knit up some that will be there shortly.

Stripes work because they add interest and texture somply by having different colors. Stitches show up better, the eye can be pulled and a focus point can be made just with a little change of color.

I am now on the lookout to do more stripey things when they present themselves.
