In the end, it turned out really cute. I didn't use 1 skein, however. I wanted it to be this color and therefore used two strands of a lighter weight yarn which necessitated two skeins. Couldn't tell you what yarn since it's been so long and the labels are long gone. The question is, will I use it? But it is so darn cute! The buttons are Czech buttons from Findings in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
