It's a dishcloth and a scrubby with a crocheted handle and cover so that the rough scrubby isn't against your skin, I hate that and I know I can't be the only one. I hate using S.O.S pads for the same reason. I know I should wear gloves when washing dishes, oh yeah I'm still washing dishes no dishwasher. I don't mind half as much as my kids do but I think this is a great idea, my kids didn't share my enthusiasm. I knit the dishcloth, go Tanya, go Tanya.
I don't know if it would be a good gift, I'm probably the only one in 2009 that doesn't have a dishwasher. I also like the idea of being able to hang it up to air dry instead of letting it fester in the holder. I have issues lol.
If anyone is interested I will post the pattern, although I've never done a pattern I will try. All you need is a scrubby and I used cotton yarn for the cover and a little elastic for the handle. As you can see the scrubbies are sold in packs of 3/$1.00, very thrifty.
I added the lining to my jacket, did the shoulder shaping--sleeve heads, should pads and a piece of fleece that I saw on someones blog it may have been on Erica B’s but it really helps the jacket lay well and you don't see the outline of the should pad, great tip, thanks bloggers. I have some hand sewing to do, hem it and do the buttons/buttonholds and it will be done.
