My mother used to make some kitchen scrubbers using a nylon-type netting material. My mother has passed on and I recently took up knitting and would like to make some of these scrubbers because they're absolutely the best srubbers ever made. I only have one left and I've looked everywhere for this nylon-type netting material she used. Has anyone ever made such an item and where did you get your supply for this item? (This could possibly be a crocheted project, as well, since she knitted and crocheted.)
I remember seeing handmade nylon net scrubbers and bath poufs when I was a kid. They weren't knitted, though. You took a length of nylon netting and ran a gathering thread through one long edge. Then you pulled up the gathering tightly so the netting around on each other and sewed a few stitches to hold the bottom together. One of the newspaper advice columnists -- maybe it was Heloise -- was very big on them. The netting probably came from fabric stores; those were the days of puffy tulle prom dresses and crinoline petticoats.
