Shopping trip to Michael's
The Mason Dixon Knitting book suggests using Peaches n Cream cotton yarn, but its not sold locally. So, I'm using Lily's Sugar & Cream cotton yarn for my log cabin blanket. It is suprising easy to use with metal needles and feels soft. About half the colors I have I bought at Michael's for $1.49 each. However they don't have a great selection of colors. So I've gotten the rest at a local independent craft store which charges about 75 cents more the Miachaels. They also don't have a full selection of colors. So they even each other out.
Today I went to Michael's and they actulally had a color of blue I didn't have, "Hot Blue." So I was a big spender and I got 2 balls of it. I love that the yarn is so affordable and that I don't feel guiltly buying any.
