I discovered tawashi while searching for washcloth patterns on Ravelry. I had never even heard of these things before, but I'm already hooked on making them. I love making washcloths, but I never use them. I prefer scrubbies and sponges. So tawashi (tawashis?) are perfect for me. I might actually use them instead of donating or gifting them, which is what I usually wind up doing with washcloths.
They also make great stashbusters, especially for that acrylic orange I keep finding more of in the back of the drawer...
When it comes to knitting and crochet, I thought I knew it all. Then I got on Ravelry.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love Ravelry?
