Shopping - Naughty, Naughty!!

I really love making those little cotton yarn dishcloths. It's fun, they come together quickly, and they work really well! I had this on hand...

Mom and I got these at a yard sale...

That is plenty of yarn, and would make plenty of dishcloths, don't you agree?

I agree too. I do not need any more cotton yarn.

But...do you know what Michael's went and did? They put the Peaches & Cream cotton yarn on sale for $1 each for those cute little skeins that make about 2 cloths apiece. I decided to splurge, but I limited myself to $5 - that's 5 skeins - more than enough! Yay for self control!!

Rut Roh.

On the reciept, the sales clerk pointed out that there was a coupon - part of the receipt! I told her very nicely to 'just hush', because I was already waaay over my limit!

So, what's your little luxury item these days? Leave a comment and let me know!

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I feel a wee bit less guilty now.

(I knew Stacey would say what she said, btw, because she's the Knittin' Kitten!)

How about a pattern for those washclothes? I have a knitted washcloths, but prefer to crochet and would love a pattern for a crocheted washcloth. I know I should be able to figure it out myself...but just thought you might have a good idea!

Pattern? For the washcloths? I, er, don't have one. I do 25ish chains, and then do what I believe to be single crochet, back and forth, until it's a square. Then I 'go around the 4 sides' a few times to give it a finished look. How about if I take some pics when I make the next one, OK? Maybe they will help a wee bit?
