Knit with what?

I bought the lovely Rusted Root pattern a while ago, and am very much looking forward to wear it when springtime comes (even though it's been springtime since September) . The pattern suggests a 80% cotton/20% merino blend, which seems like an excellent option for a short-sleeved top. Cool like cotton, bouncy and elastic like wool. The best of two worlds. But what if you live in a country that doesn't provide you with these exquisite blends? Yes, I could order it from somewhere, but maybe I don't want to. Maybe I want to squeeze the yarn before I buy it, and make sure the colour is just right for me.

Dear blogreaders, what yarn should I go for? Suggested gauge is 20. Will pure wool be too hot? Will cotton drive me crazy? Am I too great a knitter to cave in for those tempting but common cotton/acrylic summer yarns? Please advise.

Vad tror du om Garnstudios Silketweed?

Eller Rowans Wool cotton?

snyggt mönster =)

Har inga bra tips på garn, tyvärr, men ser fram emot att se tröjjan när du stickat upp den. Den är ju så otroligt söt! Skulle absolut kunna tänkta mig sticka en någon gång jag med!! En annan goding är 'Swan Lake Cardigan' i senaste IK: http://www.interweaveknits.com/preview/2007_spring.asp som också är kortärmad med puff.
