First ethanol, now sock yarn!

This cute skein of yarn is made of corn! I went for a single skein of this lightweight yarn (color: "hibiscus") because it has the same subtle shine as mercerized cotton, which makes for lovely, machine-washable baby booties. (I probably don't need to tell you that giving a new parent a pair of hand-wash only baby booties is punishable by law in Minnesota and in several other midwestern states.)

Crystal Palace makes the Maizy line, but I bought my single skein online at the Yarn Market with a gift certificate from my wonderful parents-in-law. Tune in tomorrow for the second in a series of three reports on What I Bought with my Yarn Store Gift Certificate.
