Finished Knits - Stripes!

First up, Colour Affection by Veera Valimaki. Considering how popular this pattern has been, I'm surprised I lasted this long without knitting one.  This was a good stash buster, until I decided that a stronger contrast colour (the pink) would suit better.

Held double, it worked really well with LHogan's Merino Lace (dark blue - another stash yarn) & Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace in Fuchsia.
