Just wanted to let you all know that Michael's is having a great sale on their Sugar & Cream Cotton. The 12-14 oz. skein, regularly $7.99, is on sale for $5! No coupon needed! It's such a great value for making those dishcloths and it's the biggest skein I've ever seen! 713 yards!

Can't you make tanks with it too? That's what I thought of when I saw the mambo sized skein! Of course, I personally won't be making myself a tank this year, but I figured I'd pass along another idea!

jeanius, I don't know what pattern you are planning on using for the bathmat, but there is one from Lion Brand (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/yp-bathMat.html?noImages=) that uses just under 1200 yds of the Lion Cotton, so 2 of the HUGE skeins of Sugar and Creme should be fine :)

I have a million gazillion projects going on right now, but as soon as you said "bathmat," I instantly realized that I just won't live without a hand knit bathmat for my bathroom! This board is like knitting hypnosis!! :zombie:

I picked up one of these gigantic skeins and have already made myself a good sized knapsack with plenty left over for gratuitous dishcloths. While walking around the store looking for other knick knacks to take home, I was cradling the S&C like a fuzzy baby in the crook of my arm. If there's still some left at Michaels, I should buy another to soak up some excess maternal instinct.

Do you think the S&C would be good for this bag (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=59340) that Sabrina modified. I love the way hers turned out!

I just got back from Micheal's...and I picked up a couple of S&C, one that I will use for the bag. And the other for dishclothes for me. They also had Lion Brand Incredible Ribbon Yarn on clearance for $2, so I found enough to make a summer top with it. I found it easier to knit that some Crystal Palace Ribbon Yarn, and I couldn't pass up the price!
