what do I make with that??
I thought I'll go check out a yarn store here before I go back to canada (I'm in egypt now)..thinking it'll be cheaper..so I go and it is cheaper but the collection is pretty small and its mostly scratchy acrylic..and some cottons..so I bought 3 lil balls of cotton yarn..2 of them are gorgeous self striping yarn(2 different colorways)..and one is a solid red..
each ball is 134 yards...and I didn't buy more cause I wasn't sure if it wasn't crappy like their other yarns..

so what do I do with those? i need to make some dish/face cloths for a teacher i had, for christmas..so would self-striping yarn look good in that? and would it be enough?

or should I go back and get more and do something else?(I really don't want to)

any easy suggestions are very welcomed!

thanks a lot!

I would think you would have enough of the self striping to make a face cloth...is it a soft cotton?...I'd go through the patterns here and see which ones would work but that should be plenty... you might be able to get that from the one red as well or something smaller...

I think these are cute and they don't take much...esp if it's a rougher cotton...
