              I knit baby blankets of various sizes.
              I love the choices; many colors, and color combinations.
              I love that the blankets get softer after washing.

                  This yarn is easy to knit with, knits up smoothly, and is working perfectly wih the suggested needle size (8). It's also a nice, rich color and a great price. I'd definitely purchase it again!
