I went to my favorite yarn store (actually, it’s the only one I know right now :oops: ) and decided that I just couldn’t spend the money on the really good yarns. $15 a skein was too rich for my blood, even the $9.99 ones I couldn’t justify when I needed 600 oz. And this was for 100% cotton yarn, not the alpacas or anything cool like that.
So I went to Walmart. I wanted 100% cotton, but couldn’t find anything in a color I wanted. I did see something that got me to thinking. 100% cotton is 100% cotton, right? I found a color I liked that was rolled on a machine spindle cone, made of rigid cardboard, for automatic weaving machines. It was huge, but…
Could I have knitted with it? It looked and felt like what was normally packaged in a skein, it had very similar care instructions, etc. Any ideas, suggestions, cotton is cotton, right?
