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!
