I've never knitted with scrubby yarn before, so I'd like to give this a try. The candy corn shape happens to be perfect for getting into glasses and corners. I like the color blocking - and it lends itself to other color combinations to fit the colors in my kitchen. I like to throw out scrubbies after a month or so and this pattern is so simple and quick I can keep making up new ones when I need them. Thanks for a really great idea!
