Retro Rib

Started a pair of Retro Rib socks in Mountain Colors Crazyfoot yarn in Cedar.  It's 90% merino, 10% nylon.  I like the colors.
And I've started another striped blanket, using up my stash of wool, using up little remainders of yarn.  No plan, just knitting.  The light blue and pale yellow is a sweet combo.  The black and yellow-orange is very 'bee'.

Blanket Part 5

Although it seemed like a good idea at the time, I removed the lime stripe (Cascade 220 wool, 'Citron') as soon as it was completed.


The "knit 2 together, yarn over" detail on the sides is nice.
There are only a few more rows till it's done.  The grey marle is a perfect neutral to alternate between the nine color stripes.
