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! :cheering: :knitting:

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. :wink:

What’cha making?

Doing K2together for the first time!

:lol: Good!

K2together aint as easy as it looks lol.

If you knit tight that may make it harder to get your needle into both sts. I’ve never had a problem with them.

Not knitting uber tight this time…it’s kinda fiddly, I guess…

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.

Practice makes perfect! I think K2tog are a little harder with the cotton yarns than others–it doesn’t “give” as much.

Yeah, saw yarn on sale on Joann’s site… drool :inlove:

I agree that the Handicrafter Cotton is nicer than the Sugar 'n Cream. Seems to have more of a “sheen” to it, and is easier to work with. I crocheted a bathroom set with it recently. It would have been more difficult with the other yarn.

Now, I’m making a larger rug with the same yarn, using 2 strands together throughout.
