What is on my needles? (week 75)

This is the yarn which is presently on my needles.  It is yarn from Ireland; hand-dyed and incredibly SOFT! 
I wish you could feel it !  Would that work through a 3-D printer?

The yarn is newly available at The Knitting Garage at AL Stickle and has been moving off the shelves pretty well.  No wonder, who can resist with color names like "Monarch", Teacup" (just one skein left), "Budgie", "Villain", "Pod", "Aroma", "Hunter", "Raven", "Pheasant" and "Cinder"?!  It feels a bit like magic knitting with these. 

The yarn is a DK weight 100% machine washable merino wool and if you go to the Hedgehog Fibres website, you can choose from several FREE patterns:  I found an additional free pattern written for this yarn by Stephen West :  "Yes Checks" and decided to knit up the hat in a 16 x16 check for the shop. 
The yarn feels soft in my hands and has a wonderful stitch definition.
The pattern is fun.  The hat will be tall enough to double over the ears for extra warmth.
