Sugar N' Cream
Local Michael's seems to have Sugar n Cream yarn for (!) 5 for $5. I bought one before, a striped variety, haven't knitted with it yet. I'd probably use the yarn to knit dishcloths...is it ok for that purpose or is it not worth buying at all?

That is what I use it for. You could also do potholders, hot pads, face cloths or coasters.

Yep, great for dishcloths, oven mitts, hot pads. I think it is too stiff for clothing. But that could just be my preference.

I made some pretty double knit (knit on both sides) hot pads in a wave pattern. If I can talk my husband into helping me figure out the camera & how to attach pictures, I'll post them. I soooooo not technically inclined.

I picked up some Sugar'n Cream a month or so ago. I'm making some washcloths for my daughter to take to camp, because no one else will claim anything that shade of green.

It does soften up after you knit it and with washing. I've made some summer tops with it, but at a larger gauge so it's not so heavy. It works fine for that, and for things like baby blankets and sweaters too.

One of my dishcloths is done in stockinette (done while trying to learn tension). Its actually quite soft and pliable. I could imagine it in a summer tank top.

Personally I prefer not to use it for anything really, but if I was going to I'd use it for dishcloths only. I don't think I'd use it for hotpads because it doesn't seem insulating enough, but some people have and it seemed to be okay.
