Hi everyone! I have been an avid knitter for years, and have been coming to this site for tips and reminders on a (very) regular basis.
This is my first forum, so please forgive me for faux pas I may make.
I have made several hats, scarfs and sweaters, and am about to tackle my first "heirloom" project: an Aran blanket. I found a stunning pattern while clearing out my gran's attic, a pattern she used as gifts for the births of her 3 grandchildren.
I love the idea of carrying on the tradition, and my brother and his wife are expecting their first in March! So the timing is perfect.
My question is superwash vs. non-superwash yarn. Any thoughts? Or perhaps someone could direct me to the appropriate forum thread?
Cheers! for Toronto
