Nice stitch definition 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
This is a nice, machine-washable cotton blend. Not my absolute favorite yarn, but nice. I knit a similar blanket with Blue Sky Alpaca's Worsted Cotton and was much happier with the look and feel of it. But it's also much pricier and not machine washable. The Weekend yarn was for a full size afghan as a gift, so the BSA just wasn't feasable. Overall the Weekend is a nice yarn. If I wasn't comparing it to BSA, I'd probably give it a better rating.

Exceeded Expectations 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
As a veteran knitter, I tend to dismiss anything that is not an animal fiber as a last resort. But I wanted to make a baby blanket for a friend who lives in a warm climate using a cotton blend, and I found exactly the colors I wanted in Berroco Weekend. I am completely thrilled with the hand and stitch definition of this yarn. It is wonderful to work with and it's a great weight for the project I had in mind.

Great Yarn Great Price 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This is really nice yarn to work with, and the price makes it very affordable to make those projects that require lots of yardage. It is soft and has a nice sheen.

A little splitty 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
This yarn is nice. I've used it several times. Has a nice sheen, soft, washable. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it is pretty splitty when knitting with it. But I've had beautiful end results.
