I started it last night and finished tonight. I'm amazed at how fast it went and that I actually read a pattern!
The yarn brand is Paton's Classic Wool Merino (got it at Michaels).
The color is Rosewood.
I know I made it a little skinny compared to what is should be but I'm a tight crocheter. I'm just glad I finished it without getting frustrated. I still have part of that skein left and another whole skein so I will be making matching fingerless gloves and a hat. I love the color.
TFL and THANKS Happy Hooker! (and Hookster, who crocheted her first item using this pattern...she inspired me!)
