A bit peeved.

Ok, I know I’m feeling a renewed vigor to crochet.  It happens.  It’s like I go through spurts.  Perhaps, due to my many hobbies, or just the constant A.D.D. attention span that I have.  Either way, I’m feeling all kinds of love for crochet again!

I have a friend who’s a knitter.  She does really beautiful work, and always seems to have a pair of needles in hand.  She has introduced me to some of the nicest yarns!  Bamboo, silk… those kinds!  I love these ‘new’ yarns!!  So much so, that I’ve moved away from using RH yarns.  Not in a snobby way, but…

I am dying to make this!  I want to make it with cotton or a cotton blend.  I think it’s really nice! I would like to wear it in Spring and/or Summer – so cotton is the obvious choice.  However, a reality slapped me in the face when I went to buy the yarn.  I can’t afford to!  I know the cost of things are going up – and yarn is no exception.  But, well, I’m used to buying a 7 oz skein of acrylic for a little more than $2, but cotton is like $5.50 for 4 ounces!  Ugh!  And, I’m not a small woman, so I need like 5 skeins!  :-((

So, here I sit – drooling over a FREE crochet tank top pattern that I’m too poor, or cheap, to buy the desired yarn.

Does anyone have any affordable places they buy their cotton/cotton-blend yarns?
