Both yarns came. The first did not work out for what I'd intended, but it is delightful yarn (Fibra Natura Oak - wool/linen/silk) and there should be enough for a sweater for my girl.
I'm totally in love with the edge I decided on. (There is a provisional cast-on involved which gets knitted up into a later row instead of needing sewing!)
I have the perfect buttons, too.
