Been looking forward to this for a long time! Yeah, I know the colorway is Delicious, but it brings to mind strawberries, and they are nearly in season!

After reading notes, used a garter tab to start it off as per jeanheelee’s stripe study. Also adding a yo at the beginning of the short end on the RS, and dropping it on the WS, to make that edge more stretchy, as per arcadienne’s Stripe Study #2 notes. And, oh yeah, I’m picking up the wraps. Couldn’t see any reason not to. Thank goodness for Ravelers with great notes!

5/7 Finally got to the first color change at the beginning of the 6th stripe. Looks late compared to what others got…but maybe I’m overthinking this!

5/8 “Posed” with the first strawberries of the season!

5/25 Started the 5th of 9 color sections so nearly halfway done! Working on stripe number 10.

6/10 On the last stripe. Going to try to add at least one more garter ridge to the last stripe in order to use up more of the final color. Should start the last color change soon. Strawberries are nearly “all” as folks around here would say, and so is Strawberry Season!

7/28 This stepped aside for a couple of other things, but got all done in time to go on a train ride!
