Scrubby Time!

I'm working on two big projects right now.  One is a white lacy braided baby blanket and the other is a pink and purple cardigan for my grand daughter.  Neither one is ready for show or to post about.

Sometimes, I need to take a break from these bigger projects or sometimes I need a project that is more portable than a blanket or a sweater.  On a recent trip to Michael's Arts & Crafts to pick up some more materials for the sweater, I came across some new yarn.  it's put out by Red Heart Yarn and it's called, "Scrubby".  It's all polyester and comes in several colors.

It's makes for a very nice scrubby for dishes and pots and pans.



I used size 8 needles and CO of 30 sts.  Garter st. all the way through.

We have a deal in our home, I cook and hubby does the dishes.  He really likes the new scrubby cloth and he suggested that I could probably make a bunch and sell them.  Uh....that would be a big fat, "No!"

While this yarn makes a very nice scrubbing cloth, it isn't all that nice or pleasant to knit with.  What can I say....it was a scratchy experience.  Also, this yarn pretty expensive compared to regular cotton yarns used for making dishcloths.
