Hugs to your daughter, as if being pregnant *and* having to move are not stressful enough! What project are you going to be making with the yarn once you find the ideal one?
Malabrigo has some gorgeous colors, I found their gauge is 4.5 st to the inch on 7 to 9 needles. It's not superwash though, and unfortunately a little pricey too, I think about 13.00 a skein for 215 yards. You might be able to shop around and find a better price though. It's incredibly soft!
