O-wool, How I Love Thee

I've knitted a baby hat and booties from this lovely organic 50% cotton/50% merino blend. Although I usually prefer bamboo needles, I recommend using aluminum because this is a stickier yarn. I used the natural off-white color as the main color, and will use the yellow/pink/green skeins for embroidering vines and flowers on them.
I'm also working on a baby sweater using the same colors.
I got all three patterns (hat, booties, sweater) from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms, by Louisa Harding.
