Dear Frugalling Fairy,

Has anyone ever told you you have a warped sense of humour?

Love

Is 8 too many? You could dye half black. Think of the stripy goodness.

No 8's just fine it was more the fact that after a frenzy of wash-cloth knitting last week I thought the obsession had safely passed. But obviously The Universe had different ideas.

I like the idea of dying some black - although isn't black a really difficult colour to dye successfully?

White mercerised looking cotton will be quite difficult to dye black. I do not think you will like the results. Could be wrong, but is it worth the risk?

All I can say is that what you get when you shop in MY op-shop.

Terribly sorry - your name plate must have fallen off the door (or maybe they sold it by accident?);-P

Besides didn't you say you already had a heap of cotton already?

Wow, you have a lot of yarn luck at thrift shops. I never find yarn (though I find lots of other good things.) Can't wait to see it knitted up. Or is it "knit" up?

Ooooer good find! And glad to see you are onto the dishcloth craze too.
