Best Dish Cloth Yarn?
I'm busy knitting some Lacy Fingertip Towels for Christmas gifts, however recently someone here posted a link to a Double Bump pattern for dish cloths or scarfs. (Whoever it was, I say thank you!) Last week I bought a skein of Sugar 'n Cream at Michael's and knit up my first cloth. Love the pattern and the yarn worked out great. Now here's my question: IS 100% cotton my best choice for these cloths? A blend better? I want them to be "used and abused"; no special treatment required. Also several of my friends and family have earth-tone kitchens...granite counter tops and such. Therefore I'd like to knit these cloths in neutral shades. I haven't really seen much of this, (in 100% cotton or a cotton blend), in my Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Maybe I'll have to do some online shopping, but would truly also appreciate some recommendations for that too. (It would be my very first internet shopping since I'm still pretty new at this computer stuff:teehee)!
