Down to 1.....

This morning I finished the Carolina socks! This means that I am down to one WIP, The Earl Grey socks for DH that I had originally wanted to finish before yesterday. Yesterday was DH's birthday, and I only have sock #1 completely finished. I'm working on sock #2, but I'm not very far into it yet. Maybe the socks will end up being DH's Valentines gift instead.

Anyway, back to Carolina. It was a fun pattern, very good for mindless TV knitting. I will definitely be knitting this again, maybe eliminating the purl row from the repeats. I'm just not a fan of purling in the round. I used Yarn Lust's Merino/Tencel blend yarn and size 2.75mm dpn's. I LOVE how the yarn pooled into pseudo-stripes. I really want to get my hands on more of the yarn from Yarn Lust.

I love the way those socks turned out! It's so nice to see FOs made with my yarn - I'm so glad you finished them so quickly :) Cheers! - Rosalynn @ Yarn Lust
