idly striping

I've been knitting socks this winter. This is my fourth pair since New Year's Day. I'm practicing techniques and testing out needle sizes.

Size 3s are too big for a good sock fabric--too loose and stretchable--but this is multiple-color dk yarn I had in the stash. I'm seeing if I really want to fiddle with making my own stripes compared to using self-striping yarn.

If I knit thick socks or slippers with this yarn, I'll work on size 1s or 2s.
