New Yarn! Panda Silk DK

So, since I decided to take on Panda Silk Sock, I thought it would be fun to add Panda Silk DK at the same time. It has an eerie similarity to Panda Sock, with the exception of having the same blend of 52% Bamboo 43% Superwash Wool and 5% Silk as Panda Silk Sock. It also is a DK weight, which fills in that space between sport and worsted weight yarns.

I already have a plan of knitting the Gordian Twist by Gardiner Yarn Works out of this luscious yarn. I think the two will work out well together. Of course I will keep you posted on progress of this. Hopefully I can get to knitting it before Oregon Flock & Fiber. Panda Silk DK has 4oz (114 grams) and 300 yards per skein, which is ample for the Gordian Twist!
