She sent me some great mercerized cotton yarn to work with. This yarn knits beautifully. Mary Anne said wait until I wash and dry it (yes machine wash and into the dryer), you are going to like it a lot. Wow was she correct! Soft and cuddly, stitch definition is terrific and really holds it shape! This project is all stockinette stitch one needs to be careful as any error (yours or the machine) will show!
The yarn is Bonita by Knitcraft. I've seen this yarn suggested by Mary Anne for projects in her magazine "Knitwords" years ago but never used it, I'm sorry I hadn't. Now I hear they may stop producing it. Mary Anne will have the pattern available for purchase on her blog very soon - click here. There is a ladies version too so make one for each of you!
Here are a couple of photos of the test knitting project "Manfriend Hoodie":
