I want to knit my daughter a nice top that she can wear after the baby, that would allow easy access for breastfeeding. What I need help on is what kind of yarn? She lives in San Diego and is very hot natured. She needs something light weight and easy to care for.. She also has a 2 yr old.. I tend to shy away from cotton due to it stretching.. I want something that will look nice, and stand up to life. But nice enough she can wear it if they ever go out for dinner or such.

Getting ready to start a shawl!
I don't know if this is good advice, but I made something with Berroco Cotton Twist and loved working with it. It looks and feels like Egyptian cotton, but is 30% acrylic so it holds its shape. I didn't use it for apparel though, so I'm not sure how it drapes, maybe someone else can comment on that?
No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.
