New Sock Yarn and Foreign Policy

Here is some new yarn that Crystal Palace introduced, called Panda Cotton. 55% bamboo, 24% cotton and 21% elastic. It has a tendency to split a little bit when it is being knit up. But once it's off the needle, it really has a beautiful soft finish. And it's a wool free alternative for people.

Soho came to visit us from Japan. What a pleasure to meet her. She found us on-line, and made her way from downtown on public transportation! Bravo! We had a nice time doing private mini sock-skills-lessons. She found lots of lovely yarn that she doesn't see in Japan. Then I asked, almost rhetorically "you must have lots of Noro." And funny enough, she had not heard of Noro before. Go figure.
It was such a pleasure to meet her. What a fun day.
