Basket case

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I made this Rolled Edge CD Basket using Donna‘s pattern for a friend who saw mine and wanted one too. Used…hmmm a 5 mm hook, I think. Left out the beads suggested in the pattern. The yarn is GUM.

Here is how it looks with bottles and things in it (it’s for the dressing table).

Some of you may remember I made a scrubbie with the said GUM. I am sad to report, it is highly useless. The thing absorbs a lot of water, but has little or no grease-cutting properties, and leaves streaks when I try to use it to wipe my stainless steel stove.

#2 Also, maybe someone might be able to tell me, how the dang do I use those scrubbies with the nylon scrubber in the middle (sort of like eggs sunny side up)? How do I hold the thingy? I can’t figure it out.

#3 Also, at what point in their lives do cotton yarn dishcloths stop leaving streaks on my stainless steel surfaces?
