Finally! A wool I Like

I started my first Jpanese pattern: Vest Cape.
It's very hard to find a substitute yarn for a pattern, let alone a pattern which lists the yarn in Japanese. All I had was the gauge to go on.
And with my mathematical challenges, that was not easy either.
I ripped two times before I got the gauge for the combined yarn beginning:
I used the Patons Soy Wool Stripes in Natural Navy and Noro Cashiroha in Natural.
The rest of the piece is ribbed. It's knit all in one piece. The yarns are so soft, I can't stop knitting once I start.
