I love what you did with this pattern! I casting on fewer stitches and increasing the length did wonders for it. It looks fantastic.

Nice work! Spinning saran wrap is really clever. That interesting that if you pull it in a certain direction that it stays there. Would you call it moldable?

Awesome job!

Thanks for your answers everybody!

I agree that a soft acrylic would probably be the easiest in terms of being able to throw the blanket into the washer and dryer. But I would prefer to use something that is most if not all natural fiber.

And I've never used superwash wool before. I've heard that even though it says machine washable, that you actually have to be careful (delicate wash, air dry, etc). Is that true? I just want to make sure that I"m giving new parents something that doesn't require special care. They should have enought to do already.  Smiley

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / baby blanket - wool or cotton? on: June 15, 2008 12:32:58 PM
Hi everybody!

I am planning out a baby blanket for a friend of mine who is due in late October. My question is this - is wool or cotton better for a baby blanket?

I want something warm but I am worried that a baby's skin would be irritated by wool. Cotton seems like a good second choice but the blanket won't be as warm and I don't like knitting with it because it's not flexible like wool.

And I was thinking either Knit Picks Swish worsted (superwash merino) or Shine worsted (cotton and modal).

What do you guys think?
