nobody loves garter stitch like I do

I've been hanging around the knit blogosphere for a bit now, and I know you all understand buying something yarn-related just because it is a ridiculously low price. So, I assume you'll understand when I tell you that I bought a whole box full of crochet cotton at a garage sale, because it was only a dollar for the whole box.


I'm not really sure what I was thinking. When I got the box home, I just kind of looked at it for a bit, in a dazed, confused way. Then I got a popsicle and stared at it some more. Then I remembered that I started knitting Jaywalker socks, and I forgot about the crochet cotton until a couple of nights ago, when I pulled out some skinny knitting needles and started knitting.

So I don't know what it is. Maybe I'll just hang it on the wall. I like hanging things on the wall. I sorted all the crochet cotton by colors, so I'll have a large, garter stitch, pinky orange thing:

And a large, garter stitch, green thing:

And a large, garter stitch blue thing:

And another green one:

I'm a bit light on the purple:

But maybe, if the first four don't drive me insane, I'll go pick up some more purple-ish crochet cotton.

Wow, all that for a buck? Awesome.

Garter stitch is lovely. Knitting in the round means that garter stitch looks like stockinette stitch.

I can completely relate- I just wish I had a solution for you! I usually have a clutter freak out once a year and throw it into the garbage.
