More Scrubbies

I did get more of my Facial Scrubbies done up for the local special orders.  Ended up being able to make a dozen out of the remainder of that cotton yarn.  They turned out quite well, I thought.  This one at the left is the same yarn I used for the set of 4 I have in my Knits 'n More Etsy shop.  

I was going to do more colors since I seem to have a LOT of the Lily Sugar & Cream balls of 100% cotton yarn!  LOL ... but, my arthritis began to bother me last night so I quit until today.  Thank goodness for AsperCreme!!  Works wonders for me and I had my finger dexterity back in the a.m.

I've got some lovely Sugar & Cream in white and shades of pinks and I'll be using that one next.  Here's a picture of one of them.  Now to do about 14 more so I can have 5 of sets of 3 for my local customers.  I'm going to a small in-home show this weekend and I know two or three who have requested the Facial Scrubbies will be there. 

Best to go armed with bunches. :)

This Pinks Sugar & Cream is 189823 and the Dye lot is 19144 in case you want to take a look for it.  I usually wait to order online until I get a coupon from Joann's in my email and there's free shipping and good sized discounts they're offering.

Bye for now, have to get that crochet hook working!

These are great color combinations. Goodness, you have a lot to make. Good luck at the in-home show!

Thanks! They go quite quickly which is good. The color combinations are one thing I really like about using the Sugar & Cream variegated cottons. No two are completely alike.

I've always wanted to learn how to make these for myself, but never have had the time. And these are a lot better than I could have ever made : P
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I can certainly understand why those are a big seller. BTW, my dad claims that his arthritis gets worse after eating potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplants. I'm glad your cream works though!

Hi Thea,
Oh my ... I eat a lot of tomatoes & eggplant ... hmmmm. Interesting. I may have to try cutting back. Thanks!

I especially like the blue and green one. BTW I have heard the same thing about certain foods and arthritis- I think it also includes peppers.

Uh oh, peppers, Jacquelynne? Oh, my. Hmmm ... will have to research that as well. I love cooking with peppers, all kinds of peppers.
