Dishcloths & Scrubbies



This is a dishcloth.I knitted it using 100% cotton yarn in yellow and the bamboo stitch.I used size 8 bamboo knitting needles.




This is a scrubbie.I knitted this out of 100% acrylic yarn.The swirl is created by the knitting.The yarn is an ombre type.Once knitted it is pulled together and secured to be sure it doesnt unravel.I chose acrylic for its scrubbie factor and it dries better than cotton would.

Its fab! My evening relaxation craft is knitting dishclothes. I have so many now that I'm not entirely sure I could actually give them away :)
