I'm overwhelmed by the number of responses I received! Thank you so much for your help! Swirling Lace Anklets was the clear winner, with 49% of the votes. I ordered the pattern last night from Spinning Bunny. I've never ordered from here before, I hope there are no problems...
I also purchased the electronic version of the Japanese Feather Lace socks... I really like the pattern and I figure that I can make these for my sock buddy as well if I have enough time.
Now I just need to decide on the yarn!
btw- I finished the second stripey sock last night. The stripes are perfectly aligned! Squee!!
