pretty in pink

i've gotten the panda cotton out of my system.

may i present...

"menehune cobblestones"
my design to be available from crystal palace yarns


panda cotton in rosewater
2.5mm needles/gauge 9 sts/inch

as you can see from the photo, i didn't have much yarn left. there is about 3 yds in that little pile. i like panda cotton. it is very soft. it can be a bit splitty. i had problems when i knit "hedera" because i had to use a pointy knitpicks needle to knit the lace. however, this sock knit like a dream with the slightly blunter addi's.
if you are interested, i will let you know when the pattern is available for download.

i am almost finished with the gusset decreases on the mate for "monkey" but i do hear the siren call from the panda wool.... will i finish the pair of monkeys or... i am SO weak!

Your wonderful new sock pattern is now UP on our site. Thank you so much for designing a great looking sock and for taking the excellent photos, too!

The link is here, but it's also linked in the Sock Index and Free Patterns link, too.
