Thrifted Yarn Washcloths


Green Crochet Washcloth

Does anyone else buy yarn from the thrift store?  I know you take your chances doing that... you don't know what kind of yarn you have or where it's been, but you can always wash it!  Sometimes you even get lucky and get a bunch of yarn for an awesome deal... like this green yarn.  I got it in a bag with 4 or 5 other skeins of yarn for 75 cents!

I've now turned said green yarn ( I think it's cotton) into washcloths.  They aren't perfect, but the sure are handy!

  1. Those are handy! My dishrags in the kitchen get dingy so fast.

  3. I am in the process of knitting some dishcloths now. They make a nice small project to practice new stitch patterns on.

  4. My mom made a set of these for me a few years ago. They are wonderful, and hold up very well. I see yarn at the thrift stores all the time. Now, I have a great reason to buy some!

  6. I was just talking about these last night with my mom! I can't knit but she can....but she was asking do we need any special kind of yarn? Or will any kind do?

  8. I think it's a good idea, and doesn't matter what kind of yarn is and where does it came from... you can wash it and it's like new!
    And you can wash washclothes on high temperature: surely better than sponges...

  10. I think these are wonderful! I love the color too! My grandmother made me a bunch of these washcloths and they are the best- they last forever and still look great! You can't buy them like this:) Thanks so much for sharing:)

  11. I would have never thought to buy yarn at the thrift store, but these are lovely! I'd love it if you came and linked up at my Thrifty to Nifty Thursdays at A Jennuine Life: http://www.ajennuinelife.com/2013/03/thrifty-to-nifty-thursdays-12.html

  12. I LOVE Thrift stores. Ninety percent of the crochet cotton I have used for my projects was found there or at garage/estate sales. Hubby loves looking for gems in the thrift stores and just the other day brought home a zip-lock with a 5$tag and inside were two professionally hand dyed hanks of merino wool marked at 25$ a skein. Win! :D

    Hand made dishcloths are the bomb! I love making, using and gifting them. Great project!

    I found you through Petals to Picots linky party!
