Knitting in the kitchen

Love this post from 1391 Miles Apart. Stephanie used sturdy garden twine to knit this practical scrubbie. But imagine it in Sparrow. A little linen yarn would be gentle on grandmother’s porcelain tea set. No?

Looking at this photo makes me want to get up and wash some dishes.

    This is my next knitting project. One for the kitchen, one for the bathroom, too. After that, knitting with sparrow in fern. (So excited!)

    Thank you for this! The beautiful meets the practicality of the every-day. Now there’s something to smile about…

    I use hand-knitted washcloths for both the kitchen and bath (different ones!) all the time, and find them to be a fun way to try out stitch patterns. I don’t have a blog to link to photos, but here’s a ravelry project page link with my first 5 washcloths:

    Scrubbies sound like a good idea, except…wouldn’t stuffing a scrubbie with wool make it take forever to dry out? Is stuffing even necessary?
