So I'm sitting at work thinking about what projects I'd like to put on my list to work on (shhhh don't tell my boss!). It's been awhile since I've made any dish cloths, so I was thinking about new colors or sizes or new something. I feel like I've made cloths out of every color I could find in my local stores and to be honest, I get tired of buying the little skeins that only give me 2 maybe 3 cloths, so I'm trying to buy in bulk, so why not shop on the Internet??
Well, in my searching I came across this other fantastic blog post: Putting Cotton Through the Paces. Oh yes, it is an excellent scientific article on the shrinkage, absorbency, stain release, softness and durability of 5 different cotton yarns commonly used in making dish cloths (most of which I actually have at home right now ...). As a scientist, it was really a well thought out and clearly conveyed study that has answered many of the same questions that I have: yarn. ... I want to make something ... is one yarn really better than another???
I found it a pretty entertaining article, I hope you do too!
Until next time ...
