Round and Round the Carousel!

Carousel Socks!I LOVE THEM!!!

knit a pair in 4 days. Granted, I modified the design so it was 11 sts on a 2.75 instead of 12 on a 2.5 so they went a lot faster, but something about this knit is crazy speedy.

I had purchased some Frabjuous Fibre with no plan for what to do with the bright colourway. Then I saw the Carousel Socks and I just knew it was meant to be.

I split the roving lengthwise into quarters and spun 2 quarters on each bobbin and plied them together. I did quarters instead of halves so that I would have a nice colour change that wasn't too long for the sock pattern.

Yes, I am totally casting on another pair today...this time in Katia Darling
