Bernat Handicrafter Cotton
Oh hai, knitting homies...I thought I got "Sugar and Cream" Bernat for my birthday (which I so far, don't like knitting with...) but it's actually Bernat Handicrafter Cotton! One huge skein of it, and four small skeins. Knitting it right now, making a dishcloth, nice yarn! :cheering: :knitting:

It's pretty similar to SnCream and Peaches and Cream is too. SnC softens up a lot fter it's washed, but it can be a little rough just out of the skein.

I prefer other cottons, but those two are okay for some things. ;)

What'cha making?

If you knit tight that may make it harder to get your needle into both sts. I've never had a problem with them.

Not knitting uber tight this's kinda fiddly, I guess...

Even though I don't knit tight, on some of them I use the R needle tip to loosen up the 2 sts before I knit them tog. Just put the tip in them and wiggle it a little.

Thanks for the tip. Joann's has the Bernat Handicrafter on sale right now. I am presently working on, among other things, a market bag in the Sugar and Cream green twists. It will be nice if I ever get it done. Lots of yos in it.
