The first time I had the opportunity to talk to M., our son's birthmother, I was in a yarn store in Salt Lake City. (Blazing Needles in case you're wondering.) I took that as a very very good sign! While I was there I picked out some very special yarn to knit a hat and scarf for M.
I LOVE this yarn. It is Shepherd's Wool by Stonehedge Fiber Mills. It is the softest, bounciest, most beautiful Merino I have ever touched. The color is rich and interesting.
I've named the pattern "Stork" because it was for M. who delivered our precious son.
