Thanks for the info on the panda yarn. I think I'm going to be short. I just went to the Yarn Market.com in Ohio on my way to the Knitters Connection. I bought 2 of ea. for 5 pairs of socks. I have long narrow feet. www.yarnmarket.com
is a website so I guess I could just order more if need be. I guess I should get busy and knit up at least one sock to see how much yarn it will take.
That Panda Silk really feels nice
