A new month, A new yarn of the month

Can you believe it's November already?! 2005 is flying by and the holidays are right around the corner.
This month we are featuring yarns that are terrific for knitted gifts as well as wonderful gifts as skeins to be knitted by the recipient. Bollicine Lampedusa is a wool/alpaca/acrylic blend available in gorgeous color combinations. Cascade Bobble is a fun novelty yarn that knits up quickly on size 15 needles, creating the most interesting knitted pattern...that pattern is best described by it's name-Bobble! Cascade Fixation is a great blend of cotton and elastic and creates the coziest socks you have ever worn. Do you plan to make socks for gifts this year or do you know a sock knitter who needs more sock yarn for their stash? This is the yarn to stock up on.
Stay warm and cozy this fall and Happy Knitting!

i wanted to make some socks for a gift so maybe i'll pick that stuff up.

btw - do you have a good sock pattern to use with that yarn that you can share?
i've done socks before, but i'm such a beginner that i cant really adapt patterns to different yarn weights yet - HAHA!
