Have you knit one of these? (bottom of the page) Got any suggestions that might be helpful? I've swatched it out and will be using Blu Jeans Indigo Cotton Yarn. I bought lots of the yarn very inexpensively when I first started to knit for about $2.00 per skein. The colors go well with the baby's room and will fit him when he needs it most. I also made booties out of the same yarn but expect his feet will be too large to wear them at the same time.
I might even be able to knit something for myself out of this yarn, especiallyl nice for stash depletion.
