The green stripe has an eyelet pattern. It is meant to have something threaded through the eyelets and maybe something dangling from whatever went through the eyelets. I like the pattern without anything through the eyelets. I knit a Mochimochi Land Santa that ties to one sock. He can be easily removed.
Stash has been enhanced by one skein of self-striping yarn from a club. It's called Bountiful. I like these colors on trees, but not so much on yarn.
