How delightful is this colorway? Believe it or not, it is named “Unbirthday Party” from Potion’s Yarns. And when I found it, a memory was struck, and I was instantly transported back to the mad hatter’s tea party from Alice in Wonderland, which happens to be one of my favorite childhood classic books.
