cactus_puff_dishclothKnit Picks has an awesome variety of yarn and offers not just different fibers to choose from, but each in a multitude of colors as well.

After feeling like a kid in a candy store, I decided to go with Knit Picks Dishie, a 100% cotton worsted weight yarn. This was my first time using 100% cotton yarn.

The suggested use of this yarn is for dishcloths, so I crocheted a cactus puff dishcloth as well as an interlocking-ring hotpad. Both worked up lovely.

I’ve heard that cotton yarn tends to shed while you’re crocheting, but there was minimal to no shedding with Knit Picks Dishie.

The tension of the cactus puff dishcloth held up very well even after several uses in water. This makes me think that Dishie would be great to crochet up something savvy for babies as well.
