One of my friends from way back has just become an aunt. Sounded like a good reason to use this fabulous super wash pink merino yarn.
The label says that it's Liisu Superwash Merino, but I think this company may have changed its name since I bought the yarn at Quilts Like Crazy sometime last year. Coincidentally, Quilts Like Crazy has also changed its name and location! They are now Yarnbirds, found on Falls of the Neuse Road in Raleigh.
The pattern is Madge's hat pattern, available at Cozy. I love the twin points, and, of course, the crocheted doodads.
