Beach Sock

A last-minute coast vacation calls for a new knitting project. I am an avid sock yarn hoarder (but not sock knitter), so I decided to force the issue by only bringing one project. The Arne and Carlos Regia was just the thing. The self-patterning yarn is fun and mindless, but I want to keep going to see the next pattern develop. 
I also tried the Chiaogoo 9" US0 circular needles for this project. My hands are still getting used to the tiny needles, but I'm liking them so far. I managed almost half a sock in just a few days! At this rate, I'll have at least a few pairs by fall.

Is anyone else knitting on vacation? Post some pics on our Facebook page and tell us what you're making!
