To look at their clearance boxes and found 2 unusual yarns .  Well unusual for me.

  They are cotton cloths in strips called Sugar and Cream Scrubby on clearance sale. Decided to try and crochet them into my first ever dishcloths.  Very unusual to crochet with . I made 1 and finished  it.

I've used sugar and cream for dishcloths but never heard of scrubby.  Wonder if it's coarser?   ..coarser? well , it is thin strips of cotton cloth. will try one out for myself.

Have you seen the things crocheted out of plastic bag strips?  I tried that but it got too overwhelming so it's not finished.

   yes saw the crocheted plastic bag strips. No wonder it was overwhelming. Takes time to cut them into strips , sort them and then crochet. too much work.
