I just want to say I love AC Moore Mill Ends. They are a great deal. And an even better deal if a 50% off coupon is used. I bought a couple packages that I absolutely love.
I bought one, the turquoise, a few months ago at the Crossroads AC Moore here in Cary. The other, light yellow, I bought this weekend at the College Road AC Moore in Wilmington. They aren’t identified as cotton, but when I bought them I was certain they were cotton. They are super soft. It was driving me crazy because I was doing everything I could to try and identify them because I love them so much. So tonight I decided to try the AC Moore group on ravelry. When I read that somebody had bought Hobby Lobby I love This Yarn in mill ends. It clicked in my head. I was almost positive my mill ends were Hobby Lobby I Love This Cotton. So I dug out one of my skeins of I Love This Cotton. It looked exactly the same, felt the same and the ends even frayed the same. I got excited and told my mom all about it. She asked me all these questions and the answer to them all was yes. Then I remember reading on my bags that the mill ends were made in Turkey. And I remember that was odd because they are usually from Canada. So I told myself if the I Love This Cotton is made in Turkey, I am 100% positive it’s the same. Sure enough it said made in Turkey. I am so excited! The closest Hobby Lobby is in Fayetteville, an hour and a half from me. So naturally I don’t go there often.
I’m very happy. I got 5 skeins of I Love This Cotton in turquoise for $3 and 5 skeins of I Love This Cotton in buttercup for $3. I always use 50% off coupons. That’s really the only way to craft.
EDIT: After I typed this I remembered another mill ends I bought a few months before the turquoise. It’s a variegated and when I bought it I was positive it was cotton. Then I saw the bag didn’t identify it as cotton. So I tried to identify the brand and couldn’t. Sure enough it’s I Love This Cotton in tuscany. If I ever find anymore I Love This Cotton in mill ends I will buy it!

I never really liked big bulky cloths. My hands are kind of small so they are too much for my hands. It doesn't take me long to knit one cloth. It's super easy and fast. This is definitely a knit while you watch TV item!

Gauge is not important.
Cast on 25.
Row 1 & 2: K1, P1 across row.
Row 3: K1, P1, P21, P1, K1
Row 4: K1, P1, K21, P1, K1
Repeat Row 3 and 4 until piece is a square. It was 28 rows of stockinette stitch for me.
