Socks and Such

 Socks off the needles and on the feet-for my sister! 
 The yarn gifted to me without labels;  
I know I've knitted with it before but still can't remember the specifics!
I knit this over 64 stitches on 2.50mm needles with varying cable needles! lol
I knit this basic dishcloth with the RedHeartScrubby yarn in Cotton this time.
It has a ....well, cottony feel over the polyester version.
Makes it good for either the kitchen or bath!


  1. I almost picked up that scrubby stuff on Friday but thought better of it when I looked at the price. Now I want some.
    Isn't it great to make socks for other people's feet? I wish I had more to knit for. My sock drawer is too full but I just can't stop knitting them.

  2. I didn't realize the Scrubby yarn came in cotton - must search for it.

    The socks look fabulous!

  3. I've knit with that sock yarn too. Could it be a KnitPicks yarn?

    I haven't tried the scrubby yarn yet. It looks like it would be hard on your hands. But, the cloth turned out cute. It might be WORTH it. LOL

  4. I used that yarn years ago. The socks held up really well. Great finishes lady! I felt like I need to finish something this week. I did and I felt so good afterwards

  5. I hope Aunt Con smiles every time she sees those lollipop-stick cables! :)

    The scrubby yarn is surprisingly fun to knit, I think. Pretty!

  6. Great socks. And that scrubby cloth - I'm not sure I want to knit with that stuff. Is it hard on your hands? And how does the cloth work in the shower or in the sink? I'm curious...


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!

The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat

 A victory dance transpired when I pulled the LeMoyne Star quilt off the frame! Now to cut the scalloped borders-I will use the circle ...
