Kitchen Cotton Yarn Galore!

I mentioned in last week's WIP Wednesday post that I started working on dishcloths to list on Etsy and two friends had already placed orders.  I whipped out a few more in different colors and got the listings up and two more friends ordered some, and an acquaintance on Twitter bought two more sets of four.  I'm crocheting dishcloths in my sleep!  (You can see my Etsy shop on the right sidebar).

I still have plenty of cotton yarn left but needed more colors so off I went to WalMart this morning.  I had red on hand, but wanted to get the dark green and the red/green/white variegated to crochet some dishcloths in Christmas colors, and I also picked up some brown.  I wish they had more colors available in the cones as it's so much cheaper, but I grab what I can.

So here's my stash of kitchen cotton yarn, standing at the ready to be fashioned into durable dishcloths with a few slips of the fingers.

Sage and Purple/Sage Variegated Cotton Yarn

Cotton Yarn in Christmas Colors

Ecru and Brown Cotton Yarn

All Colors of Cotton Yarn I Have Available - That's a LOT of Dishcloths
So ... what're you working on?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.

I love these pictures of all your yarn. I love the cones. My husband made me a stand to put my cones on so that they spin. Nothing fancy, but it sure makes it nice to work with. Blessings!

Okay, I like that Sugar and Cream yarn, too, for washcloths. I have a small stash of that, but I need a few more, because I'm making some washcloth/bath mitt sets for Christmas presents.

it's a real savings buying the cotton yard in the big things! I got one on clearance at Wal Mart for $5. I lost count of how many washcloths I've crocheted out of it!

p.s. Do you know how to contact mommaof3? Her profile is private...she left me a comment that I had won her giveaway and I'm not sure that me replying to that comment actually went to her :( I don't know what her blog is!

I love buying the cones as well but they are so difficult to find (except at WM) and such few colors actually available. I bought quite a bit at Michael's a week ago when they had it on sale.

she left me a comment that I had won her giveaway but her profile is private so I can't see what her blog is!
