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!

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.

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.
