Try Ebay! I LOVE Ebay for finding cheap and/or discontinued yarns. Try to search the internet for these Yarns/Kits:

STRETCH COTTON

Coned yarns are more expensive, but better in designing since you wont have any breaks as you go Wink... I crochet all my suits in one continuous piece, so it really helps, and it's actually cheaper than if you bought the same amount in individual balls/skeins!



Try these tutorials:

Think BIKINI instead of socks (same principles of design)
