I am not a fan of housework and I despise doing dishes. I have no automatic dishwasher; that would be me. I go through scrubbies like mad, mostly because my husband forgets to rinse his dishes, and when I happen to get to them, they are pretty crusty.
Berlin's Whimsy loves doing dishes, but was bored with cleaning with regular scrubbie
sponges. She decided to liven up her task by knitting dish scrubbie sponges
. Using cotton worsted weight yarn
, tulle, and size 9 knitting needles, she made herself an awesomely colorful and useful scrub sponge.
can be difficult to work with, Berlin's Whimsy weighted down the tulle and used a rotary cutter
to make an even cut. She wrapped the tulle around an empty paper towel roll so that it would be easier to knit with. Check out the complete tutorial here
I am so tickled that Curbly
posted this for us. I think I might still despise doing dishes, but it sure would make it easier on me to be working with a scrub sponge that was pretty. I am sure that using mesh fruit and vegetable bags to make these awesome sponges would work too.
