Ed the Explorer ...yarn choice

One of the reasons I am happy with how Ed turned out is the yarn choice.  I used Gedifra Extra Soft Merino.   It is a super wash merino wool.  It is a bit splitty for a beginner.. over 9 months ago when I first got this yarn I hated it, now with a lot more knitting experience under my belt I love it.   It has a nice smooth finish which is perfect for a face.. and it wears beautifully.    My son has a mini teddy that I knitted out of it.. that has been well loved and it does not show much wear.  This is a really nice yarn... but it took me a while to figure that out :-)
