If you're looking for a cheap alternative, wouldn't Sugar n Cream be a good cotton yarn to use? I've never really used it, but I know that Walmart has their own version of the same yarn called Peaches n Cream.

The colours are rather limited (pastel, baby colours), but I love the way Bernat CottonTots knits up - very soft and washes well.  Last week I bought three big balls for $10 at Michael's.

one thing you might find frustrating is that there seems to be way less options for cotton yarn in canada - basically, dishcloth weight is widely available, and that's it! going to a LYS will get you a better selection, but it'll be more expensive. zellers tends to have a better selection than walmart of the more affordable yarns. i'd think about buying yarn online, if i were you, even with shipping, it's really worth it a lot of the time.

also, we don't have joann's in canada, that's why you wouldn't have heard of it!

i like exclamation marks.
