Here is this months pattern for the Granny-Spiration Challenge by EyeLoveKnots. For this month’s pattern I decided to revamp an old pattern I did some time ago using Red Heart Holiday Scrubby yarn. I love the scrubby yarns, except they are non-absorbent. They make for excellent scrubbers, but are no good for wiping down the table and counter.
So… I decided to try mixing it with cotton to give me the best of both worlds, and I love how it turned out! I simply worked the classic granny stitch in the round and switched up the scrubby and cotton yarns after each round.
And… Goodbye Bernat Handicrafter, and Helloooo Creme de la Creme!! This is my first time to ever work with Creme de la Creme, and I found it much softer and more enjoyable to work with than the Handicrafter yarn. I have not used or washed it yet, so it’s possible I could change my mind, but so far, it’s looking good.
