Faal Into Autumn Topic of the Week #2

When you knit or crochet dishclothes, washclothes or face clothes, what do you use? Right now a lot of Peaches and Cream and Sugar and Cream as it is the easiest available. But I like the Cotlin from Knitpicks and Tahki Classic and Mercerized Cottons.

What size needle or hook? with knitting size 7 straights crochet usually a F or G.

Wood? yeap with knits and what type? Bamboo. Metal? for crochet good old Susan Bates Plastic? have some, the Susan Bates crystals for knitting.

A specific Brand? not really, usually what I have on hand Why do you love that needle or hook so much? Bamboo and woods, because the are lighter and flexible and don't hurt my hands as much. and the crochet hooks I have had for so many years and couldn't use anything else really.

Is there one you are dying to try? Hmmmm, the new Harmony by KnitPick any and all of them.

Is there a particular yarn you love and use all the time for clothes? nope. Though I do like the wool and tencel and wool/nylon blends for socks to date.

What is so special about it? It softier IMO and a little cushier.
