I took a break from crocheting pillows and went back to Dishcloths for awhile,
trying to decide on something fun to make next that wasn't a pillow.
But then I discovered scrubby Yarn and got distracted.
Scrubby yarn is not for sissies, unless said sissy has better than 20/20 vision.
Lordy, this stuff can be hard to work with.
I happened upon a tip sheet before starting my first scrubby, which suggested
pairing it with cotton yarn so that you could see the stitches. Totally works.
My first attempts have passed the get-the-dried-egg-off-the-dish test,
so I'll bundle a couple of these with a couple of almost-color-coordinated dishcloths
as the prize for the guess-the-expiration-date-on-the-parsley-flakes contest
announced yesterday. A run-on sentence with 15 hyphens. That may be a record for me.
Submit your guess in the comments of yesterday's post by 7 mountain time tonight
if you want to play along.
As for the post-pillow, next big crochet project, there is a blanket in the works:
I'm using the same stitch that I use for the dishcloths and Scrubbies, except on a much larger scale.
