Wow so pretty, I'm so excited to see what comes in February! You don't happen to have any scraps STR Highway 30' lightweight? I don't think I have enough to finish my socks:(.

Gorgeous! I wish I were at a 4.0, but can't say the same. Congrats! You are such a beautiful knitter!

i know this is an old post, but i have a pomatomus-related question for you. i just finished my first one, and it's really holey along the right edge of the foot, at the spots where the first charted stitch is a YO, especially the one directly preceding the k3tog. and i don't mean normal yo-sized holes, it's at least 2-3 times that big. i noticed it right away and thought i'd made a mistake, so i ripped back, followed the directions like a hawk, and snugged up my stitches nice and tight around that area -- and still the holes. any ideas what i'm doing differently than all of you successful pomatomus-ers out there?
