Read this:
 

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting message board digest with the latest knitting pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

After reading about this yarn on KP I was anxious to knit up some dishcloths with it. It was pretty costly compared toregular Sugar'N Cream yarn and no where as much in a skein. I hope I will be able to get a whole dishcloth out of it.
Has anyone actually knit with it yet? If so did you knit by itself or in combination with regular cotton yarn? For those who haven't seen it, it does not look like yarn, it looks like narrow strips of ripped cloth. Thanks in advance for any hints on how to use it.

I got some the other day and put a roll of it in my package to go to my swap partner, but I just keep looking at it, not sure yet what to do with it. I also bought some of the scented rolls, a variegated pink smells like roses, lavendar--lavendar and I sent my swap partner the soft yellow that smelled of vanilla. I love it, I just keep it in my bag to keep it smelling good!

I would love some. I know it is pricey, so I would just make little round scrubbies out of it... not whole dishcloths. where did you find it? I haven't been able to find it yet.

I purchased the booklet that was near the scrubby yarn. It has a peony scrubby on the cover. It is crochet, and works up quickly. One skein of main Color to complete. Would make a lovely gift with a fancy bath soap.

I bought some but haven't knitted it up yet. I agree with Amy - a small round or square maybe 3-4".

You can get it at A C Moore's if you have one near you. I got a whole 1 pound bag of it in the mill ends bags that they have for 5.99 and I used a 40% coupon. However I have not used it yet. the bag had sage green, lavender and pink it in.

yes the skeins are quite small, 42.5 g (or 1.5oz.)
i haven't used mine yet, but i was really lucky because the scrubby yarn was with the regular yarn of the bernat handicraft cotton for $1.50 a skein!! i bought a few, but they did not have the books at that time,

I haven't seen the smelly kind yet. Was that Sugar N Cream also? It sounds interesting.

I got mine at Michael's. They didn't have a lot but they did have several colors. It was right next to the regular Sugar'N Cream.

I saw it at my local Michael's. If you have a Michael's, maybe call them first to see if they have the yarn.

I got some scrubby yarn from Michael's. So far, that's the only place around here that has it. It works up well and does a great job on dishes, non-stick and other pans, and casserole dishes. The only thing it doesn't do well is wipe up counters/tables. I love it! Yes, it is a smaller skein and is about 2X the cost, but if you use a coupon it's more cost efficient. I used up the leftover amounts from 3 balls to make another cloth. Depends on how big of needles you use to make them, of course. :)
