finally picked a yarn!

i'm going with the new o-wool balance. it is a 50/50 blend of organic merino and organic cotton. i've gotten 12 skeins in a pretty dark green color, and will start knitting as soon as i finish assembling the baby yoda sweater i'm working on now.

I hadn't heard of o-wool so had to look it up http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/yarndetail/2880
Looks great - I love the dark green color!

Wool cotton blend sounds very interesting. I'll be interested to hear how you like the yarn.
