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?
