Nubbie Scrubbie Cloth

Yes, don’t get used to it, but I have another finished object report already.  But first, I have to flash my favorite nub…

See that one on the left?  That’s the cutest little nub, especially when it’s wagging about a million miles an hour…

Anyway, back to the cloth

Pattern:  Nubbie Scrubbie.   This is a great, very easy little crocheted cloth.   I need to make another one for the Knight to test-drive… he prefers to use handmade cloths and is HARD on them.  He’s a tough critic, so while I think it looks ideal…

Yarn:  Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Twists in Green Twists.  It was crazy-splitty, but according to Ravelry, I’ve given it high marks before, so maybe it just wasn’t twisted tight enough for this particular crochet project?

Hook:  I did the foundation chain with a size H hook and then the rest of the project with a G.

Verdict:  I think it looks awesome for scrubbing dishes or skin.  We’ll see what the Knight says when I get around to making one for him; this one is destined for someone else.

    I’ve had difficulties with the yarn splitting while knitting, too. Love the cloth: its texture will make it great for scrubbing.

    So funny about Gg’s tail! DH says if they had left one more inch on Macy’s tail when they docked it she would be able to take off like a helicopter. That tail spins at warp speed!!

    Thanks for the link to the cloth. I will try that one today! I need some for my self and others too.

    I’d never heard of knitted dishcloths till I joined the Knitlist, years ago. Now I have some, all of them gifts from other knitters, and I totally love them. They are such useful little bits of love.

    Cute Scrubbie! Looking forward to the Knight’s official review…

    Wagging tails make me so happy. A couple of my girls wag their tails the entire time they’re eating. I take that as a complement on my cooking.

    My favorite is when one is asleep and starts wagging it’s tail. I always smile because they must be having a good dream and what more could a dog parent ask for?

    Extremely cute nub, yes, and nice cloth too.

    I love that your dogs, who are sisters, truly look like sisters with the similar coloring.

    Now, there is a yarn project I could actually make! And it looks like it doesn’t even take that long.

    I love wagging tails, too, and, like Sue said, I love them on sleeping dogs. Thor used to sometimes run in his sleep, too, and he was a sleep-woofer. It was just so funny!

    Lovely nub, interesting cloth. I liked the green twist when I made cloths from it, but they were knit and not crochet, so maybe? Windy again today…I could really appreciate a calm sunny day just about now.

    Tails talk!! SO CUTE

    I love that the Knight is so particular about his scrubbies. Good for him!! your new one is great and looks perfect for scrubbing:
    Oatmeal
    rice
    cream of wheat
    anything white or grey!! i forbid use of hand knit/crochet scrubs with spaghetti sauce

    I love a good nubby cloth. Is there one in a knitting pattern that you like as well?

    And I like the new layout on the blog – very fresh!

    Oh, I like the new blog look, Chan!
    Cute photo of the girls; sniffing out game? 🙂
    First thing I thought when I saw the cloth was my shower. Be perfect in there.
