FO: Self striping socks

I lied, I totally have another FO for this week.  This yarn is Must Stash Perfect Sock in “Modern”.  I used a Fish Lips Kiss Heel for these (as usual) but I used the other end of each cake for them instead of messing up my stripe pattern.  I didn’t think I would have these finished because I still had like two more complete stripe sequences in each cake but I got to the point where I would have had to add calf shaping, and I didn’t want to.

Ravelry classifies this yarn as Light Fingering, and I think from now on for yarns classified this way I will use 68 stitches for a vanilla sock (I use 64 normally, and it’s what I used here).  These fit fine but they are a little more stretched out than I prefer.
