What kind of yarn is everyone using?

Just wondering what kind of yarn everyone is using, and what they think of it. I'm sure there's posts on this, but not in all one spot. For my first ripple I used wool-ease thick and quick, and I love the softness, how fast it works up and it drapes really well. Discuss!!

Another granny chevron

Because the last blanket got such good reviews, and I liked doing it so much, I'm starting another granny chevron. This one will be in Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in Patio Pinks.

I have about 8 full skeins of the stuff and no clue what I bought it for... hehe so a blanket it shall now be. We'll see how far they get me... each ball is only 1 1/2 oz. so I may not get very far...But I can always add a bunch of rows in a similar pink to the ends, or the middle somewhere.. who knows. We'll see how far I get with 4 skeins then think about adding a middle section.

I'm using an "H" hook and going for an adult cover up blanket. Pictures to come later, once I get past the first few painful rows.
