I have a friend (no, really) who wants to make the yoga mat bag from Knit Wit.  She's having trouble with the price of the Mission Falls 1824 cotton yarn.  Does anyone know of a good substitute for this yarn?  Or has anyone made this bag with a different yarn before?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

I made the one from Stitch n Bitch Nation (I think it was) from cheap cotton yarn from Walmart. The kind you make dishclothes out of. Or you could make it out of Sugar n Cream. Either would only cost about $2-3.

what about a cotton from www.knitpicks.com - maybe Shine Worsted or Main Line?

Thanks for your help!  I wasn't sure if Sugar and Cream cotton would be a good substitute for the Mission Falls cotton. 

I'll let my friend know what the two of you suggested and she can take it from there!
