The yarn is Bernat LuLu---something I had always wanted to buy for my own LuLu. It's very soft---it looks like Sirdar Snowflake, but feels MUCH softer. You need to use larger needles for it but it knits up airy and loose/stretchy. In reading back in that other post about the front, I see that I had planned to add a hood! That would certainly let Lucy know which is the front and back easily, LOL. She also doesn't care when it's inside out.
I still have 3+ balls left (almost 4 balls, and there might be another 4 ball bag of it downstairs). I could make one for Megan, but really, I've had enough of LuLu. It's nice and all, but once is enough. If it would work better on the machine I'd whip up some blankets, but I'm not sure it'd be worth the hassle of dropped stitches. If anyone likes this yarn, let me know if you'd like some more :)
