I just started knitting in December and have become a whiz at scarves!! LOL Now I'm branching out!!

I'm looking to knit a few baby blankets for friends who are due in the Fall and can't figure out what type of yarn to use.

My all time favorite yarn is Caron Simply Soft. I'm not sure if you classify it as "chunky," but it does wash well. You can find it just about anywhere. I usually get mine at Wal-Mart for $1.99.

Good Luck,

I'm now in love with TLC's Amore...its so soft and it works up easily.

You'll have to post pics of your blankets for us!

I have to agree with both previous posts and wanted to add another, the Bernat brand. I LOVE working with this yarn! I made a beautiful afghan for my step daughter and it turned out so soft. They have a baby line that is even softer, here is a link to an online store that has great prices, I order from them all the time. :)
