I used my Options, but they seem to be fine.

Three additional Scrubbie uses!
You know how it is: soup or gravy boils over, you clean up the burner bowls and the surrounding stovetop...but whaddya forget? Yup, underneath the burners! Today, whilst changing the foil for my burner bowls, I got a horrid glimpse underneath. I had forgotten to wipe up that last boil-over!
Yuck. Now it is a dried, crusty mess. BUT WAIT! Scrubbie to the rescue! I poured 1/2 cup soapy water into the well, waited a minute, and took a Scrubbie to it! VOILA! No fuss, no muss!
Used a sponge to soak up the 1/2 cup soapy water!


Another use for a Scrubbie (needs no words!):


And finally, reserve a special Scrubbie (tubside) for this daily chore:


And we thought DISHES was all a Scrubbie was good for!

Hey Artlady, I was thinking about those uses, too.

I made 2 today and have many others planned. My DD said, coool!" When I sat down next to her to knit my 1st one up. She went straight to the bag of netting spools and yarn and pulled out the next colors for me to knit. Make knitting these that much more fun.

Here they are. I will make more soon. My DD wanted to take one and start using it right away. I would let her use it until I took the picture. I plan to give these as gifts.

Artlady I don't know how you can make so many in one sitting. They were hard on my hands.

I got my spools and cut them - not easy for me but they are done. I'm going to make some this weekend.

Those are pretty ones, Luv! I doubt I can make more than one or two in an evening either.

I was thinking of those other uses, too. I need to make a few for other things now!

Yup, they are hand on the hands. Not just the roughness of knitting the netting...but the hand 'muscle' it takes to knit the stitch! Those stitches don't 'glide'!

Sure made me grateful to get back to Rowan Polar!

@ Artlady, love those Campbell's containers you have on your counter

I picked up some tulle @ Michaels this weekend. I know, I know not the same as nylon netting but it's a start ... now to cut em up and knit on.
