My little adventure with jogless striping
Completed in 2011, the year I knit a "sock wardrobe" for my sister

I wanted to experiment with jogless striping. So, with these socks, this is how I knit the stripes:

Row 1: Just start knitting with the new color
Row 2: Slip marker then slip the next stitch purlwise
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: Shift marker one stitch to the left

This technique avoids, as much as possible, the jogs that you get with knitting stripes.

I do like the effect that stripes can have, and I do like the color combo of these socks. I have always loved the combo of green, pink, and black.
