New striped socks in progress

I decided to make another pair of leftover socks. I'm using remnants of SweeTart (my first ever dyed yarn!) and Stellar (probably my favorite ever dyed yarn). They're called Sweet and Stellar socks. (Stellar is on the top in this picture.)

I think these 2 colors coordinate really well together. They both purple and blue, just in different shades and with different repeats. I started doing them in 2-row stripes like my last pair, but because they do coordinate so well, it was not really discernible when each new stripe started. So I went with thicker stripes. Six-row stripes gave a really nice effect. I love these. As usual, they are opposites. I finished the Stellar sock last night and finished the toe of the Sweet sock.
