Besides dishcloths, have any of you knitted anything else with 100% cotton yarn, such as Sugar n Cream? I have made 2 dishcloths now and I don't really like knitting with the cotton. Just wondering.....
I've made several sweaters and hats with 100% cotton...not sugar 'n' Cream though. I've used Pachuko Organic cotton, Knitpicks Shine, Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine, and GGH something or other. The washability is nice, but in general I'm not a big fan of knitting with cotton...much too unforgiving!
I haven't used Sugar n' Cream for anything other than dishclothes, but there are some nice mercerized 100% cottons out there. I've used Elann's Endless Summer Lara cotton, Jo Sharp Soho Summer, and others I've liked. And Blue Sky Cotton is sooo soft, but more $$, of course. So there are higher end cottons you might like more if you're making garments. Cotton/Acrylic blends are good too, and they generally don't stretch out like 100% cottons often do and are more forgiving.
I used Sugar and Cream for a lace kercheif. It was good for a first lace project (I think) because it was "unforgiving." I can't figure out what to do with the rest of the ball, though. :rollseyes:

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself. ~Friedrich Nietzsche Double Pointed - a knitting blog
