Holiday Scrubby and More

The Mister and I love our scrubbies.

I just finished up some Christmas ones.  The knitted square one is for people dishes. The round crochet one is for critter bowls.

As soon as those were done I ordered more Scrubby from Amazon. I wanted blue for January but then I saw the Scrubby Sparkle and had to have some of that too. It will be perfect for spring.

In other knitting news I came to a roadblock with the thumb gusset on the mittens. I didn't have any more stitch holders.

They are all in use in other projects. I know, I know. I could use waste yarn but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I've always used stitch holders for jobs like this and I am a creature of habit.

Instead I waited for an order from Amazon to get here. Now I've got plenty. Bring on the gussets.


  1. I almost bought some of that sparkly scrubby Red Heart at Hobby Lobby yesterday, but instead bought their brand. We’ll see how it works. I have to finish Dennis’s sweater before I try any of my other fun projects that are waiting. I find you can never have too many stitch holders. I never seem to have the size that I want when I want it.
    Blessings, Betsy

  2. Nice to have an array of scrubbies! The mitts are so pretty--nice selection of holders-I've never seen the super small ones!

  3. I frequently use large safety pins as stitch holders for small things like thumbs

  4. Oooooooooo...that sparkle scrubby yarn might be the one that gets me to try it.

  5. Creature of habit - I'm right there with you.

  6. I still haven't bought that scrubby yarn - it just felt weird when I touched it. I don't think it is something I would enjoy knitting. I love those mittens.

  7. First, I want to thank you for the awesome package - soap, lotion bars, lip balm! What a generous package. The soap is so pretty and smells just wonderful. It will be enjoyed and I will pay it forward.
    What a neat idea to identify your scrubbies by the shape. Easy to keep track of. The mustard colored yarn is just beautiful. Is that a sock or sweater? It looks so soft and snuggly.

  8. Stitch markers etc. are perennial items on my Christmas list. One can never have enough!
