I purchased this yarn several years ago with the intent of making it my “next” project, as soon as I was done with whatever I was working on at the time. Oops. I’d actually started this particular post around then. Its been languishing in the Drafts section, silently accusing me every time I wrote about something else. Why haven’t you whipped up this easy project? I’d skim over the Drafts option and choose New. Sometimes, that’s the way it goes.
So, what did I think after the two year wait? The yarn is nice and scrubby, textured enough to make finding stitches a little difficult. I can definitely see its value as a household cleaning item. But this is a double-edged proposition. For the yarn to be effective enough, it has to be coarse enough, and that can make it rough on your skin as you’re working it. I had to stop twice before chafing started! I will also add that I already have dry, rough, older skin, so this may not be an issue for all of you who try it.
As for the particular pattern I used, Fancy Flower Scrubber, that sucker is big. I won’t be making a second blue one because I can’t see using them for their intended purposed. It’s way larger than my hand so it wouldn’t be ergonomic for me. I may whip up a simple square in hdc just to use it up…but later. Need to give my skin a break.
