I was sorting my stash during a school lecture today, so that I could take a chunk of it back to the storage unit.
While sorting I came across enough cotton to make dishcloths for an entire subdivision and burp rags for an entire maternity ward:
I think I can put the kibosh on cotton purchases for a good long while.
On the other hand, I am teaching another knitting class at the library in June. This time it is for adults, and this time we are making dishcloths. So, see? These aren't impulse buys, these are work related purchases! (Isn't justification a wonderful thing!?!)
