Thrifted Yarn Washcloths


Green Crochet Washcloth

Does anyone else buy yarn from the thrift store?  I know you take your chances doing that... you don't know what kind of yarn you have or where it's been, but you can always wash it!  Sometimes you even get lucky and get a bunch of yarn for an awesome deal... like this green yarn.  I got it in a bag with 4 or 5 other skeins of yarn for 75 cents!

I've now turned said green yarn ( I think it's cotton) into washcloths.  They aren't perfect, but the sure are handy!

  1. Those are handy! My dishrags in the kitchen get dingy so fast.

  3. I am in the process of knitting some dishcloths now. They make a nice small project to practice new stitch patterns on.

  5. I was just talking about these last night with my mom! I can't knit but she can....but she was asking do we need any special kind of yarn? Or will any kind do?

  8. I LOVE Thrift stores. Ninety percent of the crochet cotton I have used for my projects was found there or at garage/estate sales. Hubby loves looking for gems in the thrift stores and just the other day brought home a zip-lock with a 5$tag and inside were two professionally hand dyed hanks of merino wool marked at 25$ a skein. Win! :D

    Hand made dishcloths are the bomb! I love making, using and gifting them. Great project!

    I found you through Petals to Picots linky party!
