Oh my goodness! I love novelty yarns! This is the perfect dish cloth to add a pop of color and decorate the kitchen for the holidays. There are so many different colors (27 from the red heart website) that matching them up with a holiday shouldn't be difficult at all. I bet the texture will help get the dishes clean too!

I love this yarn. I make simple scrubbies holding a strand of cotton yarn with the scrubby yarn. Also, I prefer a smaller size...4x4". The cotton is great for absorbing dish soap and wiping down counters and they wash and dry perfectly .

Love the scrubby look of the yarn - like it was made just to knit dishcloths. Could also use it for a washcloth in the bath, or to wash the dog. Sometimes simply knitting a dishcloth is te perfect way to de-stress.

I am one of those people who cannot sit doing nothing - these dishcloths/scrubbies are ideal no pattern to follow, just knit to size. Not wasting time, using time to do something practical. I like this

I love this scrubby yarn. I ordered two skeins of it and that will make a lotta dishcloths.

Really? I have 2 skeins here, but each skein is just 92 yards,is it possible to get larger balls somewhere? I made 1 dishcloth with a different pattern and I barely had enough to finish it. I'd love to know what size of these balls make alot of dishcloths.

You can never have too many dishcloths and this pattern looks incredibly easy.

These would make the perfect rags. We always seem to be losing those at my house. Now, I can just knit them up myself. Thanks!
