Every time I see this yarn in the stash, I fall in love love love with it all over again. It's slightly shaded behind the twist, and it will make a lovely baby sweater for the Monkey* when he gets here. I bought this at Rhinebeck. It is 100% merino wool, worsted weight, from Maple Creek Farms. The woman working at the booth was a real pleasure to chat with, which I sadly didn't find everywhere at Rhinebeck.
*I'm trying out nicknames. He needs a "name" for my birthing class, which starts next week. Other contenders: Squirt. I'm not good at this.
