Pattern? Check!

Okay, I'm pretty sure the yarn is going to be the Crystal Palace Panda Wool, and this pattern, Garland Lace Socks is what I'm going to knit. I bought it from The Loopy Ewe and it arrived today!!!!

I also got some new cool yarn, but don't have a picture yet.

However, I have a second sock on the needles that needs to come off before I can begin. I must say this is certainly a good preventor of the Second Sock Syndrome.

Sockapalooza Yarn

Okay, I got some yarn today, and I think its the yarn for my pal. It's the Crystal Palace Yarns "Panda Wool" in the red cinnamon colorway. It's 46% Bamboo, 43% wool and 11% nylon. I've been intrigued with this yarn since I first saw it (of course I don't know where). I got it from my local yarn store.

For some reason, I've been drawn toward reds and oranges for this person. Don't know why. Based on some feedback I've gotten from her, it may not be her first choice, but I really like this stuff. I think I may just have to start knitting and see. Of course I don't have a pattern fully set yet. I'm thinking something kind of lacy....

If you have a minute I'd love some input.

Tangentally, or in the "Am I Crazy?" category, I found out today that my county fair's knitting section's theme this year is socks. I'm thinking about submitting a pair.
