In my revamped card catalog, I have several drawers dedicated to holding cotton yarn in a rainbow of colors. I used to hate the cotton yarn and thought it was really difficult to work with because it didn’t slip and slide like acrylic yarn did, but then, it kinda grew on me. And my collection grew, and grew and grew. It was sort of an obsession. If there was a sale on cotton yarn, I couldn’t get out of the store alive. So, now I have several drawers dedicated to skeins and skeins of cotton yarn that I’ve used to make a bunch of different projects, like my Owl Pouch, Flower Pins, and Flower Coasters.
Here’s another great gift idea that really puts the cotton yarn to good use – Crochet Dishcloths from my friend Kara at Petals to Picots! She shares 4 different patterns, so you can mix and match patterns AND colors. Bundle these up with some coordinating ribbon and they’d make great holiday gifts, don’t ya think? Head on over to her blog for the patterns!
