My latest project is for a coworker who is due to have a baby in October. I’m surprised that I’ve worked with a few novelty yarns in the past year or so. I’ve always been a bit of yarn snob, but I have to say Bernat’s Baby Blanket yarn is lovely. It’s thick, warm and soft. And comes in lots of great colours so you aren’t stuck with the typical blue, pink or yellow yarn generally offered for baby yarns.
