Nope - just a type. It's Salmon of Wisdom

I love the colorway - kind of a grown-up colorway, like Morwenstow. Lots of her colorways work well for adults, but this one seems a bit more mellow or something. Terrific!

Okay - thanks for the clarification, I thought I was losing my mind for a minute!! It is a beautiful colorway. I wanted Erica's single ply so bad but didnt have the pp at the time. I love the muted sophistication of it!

Perfect description. (I've not yet seen it in person, but I know for sure that I'm going to need some for myself - not my kiddos!)

So I was talking to DH about wanting to get the HH pattern to make all of the boys hats for x-mas and maybe myself one as well. Then he looked at the pictures and and asked if I'd make him one too

thanks

When I met the workers in the wallmart parking lot they hand me this beautiful tiny (4lbs) black baby. I told them I would never give him back, and we wont. We adopted him when he was 1. We always tell him we got him at wallmart. He loves hearing his story.
Such a sweet story!!
