I have my match! She likes pale pastels in water colors. Sounds YUMMMY. And my sister's Diva Scarf notwithstanding, I seldom use those colors - it will be fun to stretch a little.
I've been trolling her blog - it's fairly sparse, but all the socks she's done are plain ones. I don't know if I want to choose a lush yarn and a plain sock, or a plain yarn and a sock full of interesting details like the Horcrux Sox or a Nancy Bush pattern?
I emailed her, but haven't heard back.....
(And I wonder what the person who is knitting for me will choose... I got a nice email from her!)
ETA: just linked this with the Knit Pligg This is a totally new to me (and VERY cool) software interface that Alison had set up after we broke blogger.
