Congratulations. You've picked a beautiful pattern to welcome your new Great Grandchild. The Ravelry page has a very helpful tab marked "yarn ideas"
The most popular yarns used were Simply Soft, Pound of Love, and Berroco Comfort. I've used all 3 in the past for washable projects. The gauge is 30 stitches for 6" (or 5 stitches/inch; 20 stitches/4"). IF I was picking, I probably would select Pound of Love, which is a slightly lighter worsted and great for baby items.

Very nice! Do you have a link to the pattern? I wasn’t able to find it on Ravelry. TIA

Lovely. I hate knitting throws that only have one good side. Could you please share the pattern? Thanks!

My first tip is to trust your GPS and directions - it's at the end of a semi-paved street in an industrial area. The first time I went I almost turned around because I thought that the road had ended. I think that they have some signs now, which should make it easier.
The prices are best on the bagged multi-packs of yarn. Those are mostly discontinued colors, so make sure to buy enough. The "weekly wow" is their best deal. Other prices are comparable to Joann's or Michael's on sale.
If you are going this Sunday, I think there is an extra 20% off Super Bowl sale. Check their website..
The staff is really nice.
Have fun!!!

Flicking through my ipads bookmarks, doing some pruning and I came across this useful site. It’s got the st patterns directions for flat and the round knitting.

Very useful. Thanks for sharing. I've bookmarked it - now the trick will be to remember where I've filed it

They are exquisite. I adore them all. Joining the chorus asking for pattern information.

We love taking San Francisco City Guides tours. They have a variety of free volunteer-led (donations accepted) walking tours. Our daughter has lived in SF for over 10 years and we haven't run out of new areas to explore.

I've had no problems machine washing and drying Caron Cake items. Just use cool to warm water and low heat, making sure not to 'overdry' - or, better yet, remove from dryer when still slightly damp.

Absolutely gorgeous. Could you share the pattern names and/or links?

I've used the worsted for many baby items and have been very pleased with the way it knits. The recipients have liked the finished garments for their easy care - machine wash in cool or warm water and tumble dry on low heat. Although the label might say to dry flat, it's been no problem to dry on low and remove while slightly damp.

Some yarns (wool being the most common) will 'grow' when wet washed (with water) depending on how the yarn was produced. If you knit a garment with such a yarn it WILL grow on you if you put it in water. That is the reason serious knitters not only knit gauge swatches but wash them as well if that is the care method to be used for the garment after it is worn. Washing a swatch for a flat item like scarves may not be that important but it is highly recommended for anything that has a fit to it and that will be put in water.

Thank you ElyseKnox for a wonderful explanation for a lesson that I've learned the hard way. I will now swatch AND wash.

Hi KP's. I'd like your advice. I used to block my FO's by pinning and spraying them with water, then I discovered Soak, which is a no rinse wash similar to Eucalan. I fell in love, so I switched and starting soaking and blocking all of my wool and animal fiber FO's in Soak. My problem is that many items grow and stretch a lot when I take them out of the basin, no matter how carefully I try to scoop them up. This isn't a problem with lacy scarves and shawls, but it is with sweaters where fit is an issue. I'm wondering if I could combine methods and put a few drops of Soak in the spray bottle and revert to my spray and pin method? Soak is no rinse anyway. What do you think? Has anyone sprayed and blocked with Soak or Eucalan?
