Knitted Scrubby Dish Cloth

Finally this is finished.  For some reason this was an arduous task for me, taking several days for what could have been done in a few hours.  It is a knitted dish cloth with tulle to make it scratchy. 

First step is to make the toule yarn.  Take a yard or so of medium tulle and starting at one, corner cut a thin strip around and around and around and around and around.........  I used the medium tulle and it was a bit hard on the hands to work with but the fine wouldn't give any scrubbing power on pots and pans and the large would probably eat up your hands knitting with it.  The holes in it also gave knitting another dimention of challenges when stitching.  Anyway, there is no pattern for this.  I cast on 35 stitches with just the cotton yarn and then added in the tulle for the second row and continued with the knit stitch until it was a good dish cloth size. 

A close up shows the scrubbiness of it.
