FO: Scrubbies-athalon!
This is what I did while my DH was hunting!
I had myself a right good time! Scrubbie-athalon!



All laid out on fresh October snow (surprise!):


Charlie is always interested in what I'm doing!


RECIPE:

Using US11 and one strand each: Lily cotton / 1.5" wide netting:
Cast on 16st.
Knit (garter stitch) for 11 ridges.
Bind off.


PS: The solid red scrubbie, and the lemon-lime scrubbie didn't use any cotton. They were two strands of the netting held together. They are much scratchier, but cost more to make.

Oh how pretty that snow is! Are all those scrubbies for you? I only have 3 and boy do I need more! Just haven't done it yet.

I've wondered about just using the nylon. Do you think it's any sturdier?

Nice scrubbies!

I wish my family liked the square knitted ones - I've had to learn to crochet (which is good!) just to make them nylon netting round scrubbies (which is not so much fun).

Jan, I can't speak to being knitted, but I've been using the round scrubbies I crocheted with just netting, and they are holding up very well.

I make them almost like Artlady, but I use a smaller needle and make them smaller. They do hold up very well. Eventually the yarn gets tired if you use them for scrubbing really abrasive things a lot. I just wondered if that happens with all nylon. I'm sure crocheted would work just as well. It's pretty dense.

Thanks for posting this - you've reminded me that I've been meaning to make these since you first posted them! I need to now especially since we've moved and no longer have a dishwasher

Yes, a WHOLE LOT more sturdy!

I'll gift the yellows and blues. The reds are definitely for moi!
The greens....I dunno yet!

But, as long as I was away in the mountains, I got on a roll...and kept knitting til I ran out of netting. I had more netting at home, but didn't bring it all along.

I've been using a green and a red scrubbie, while one's in the wash, I use the other. But I didn't have any other spares! Now I have 4 red spares!

I think I might knit up some white dishclothes, to gift with the scrubbies. Two scrubbies per dishcloth. But I won't make those dishcloths as big as I used to. They are unwieldy when they're too big. I like them to be smaller in the hand. You can squeeze them out easier! Instead of casting on 40-something, I'll cast on 20-something and see how that turns out!

I sent this to my sister-in-law last year:

This dishcloth is too big for me. I think it was a 36-40 cast on!
