Aww, that is sweet of her.

Cute hat Erica, but I agree, much to short to be a useful hat.

Lots of meetings today at work so getting knitting planned and done.

And, bad mother, I forgot to take #1 to get fitted for his mouthguard yesterday I had the appointment on the calendar, but completely forgot about it. And of course they are closed today so I can't reschedule it.

bbr and mmw too scratchy for a newbie IMO. IDK about reg gaia for softness but GB is soft but yes, makes a thick fabric. Probably depend on the time of year you needed it for. LT knits a thin fabric but not the softest, yes you can use it for diapering

Gaia worsted may be best of the list above? I havent' knit that though to compare it to LT.

What are you making w/it?
I want to make a soaker, NB longies & hat, and a romper

Gaia worsted-I've heard it pills badly
Gaia Aran-seems like it would be too hot
LT- can I use lt as a diapering base since it has the sw single in it?

Dani, I would definitely use Gaia worsted out of those choices! Lt as my second choice. The others are just too thick or scratchy. Pilling would be minimal with such a small immobile baby.
