I'ts Bernat Softee Baby in variegated pastels, contrasted with a mystery yarn in black. I love it! I may make this one for me... with sparkly little beads in each eye socket.
In other news, I've finished my Broadripple Socks. I used Cascade Fixation, in variegated purple. We seem to have a thing for purple around here.
