I love this little tawashi. I've made several but unfortunately I can't sell them on Etsy unless I make my own pattern. Working on that! http://www.craftstylish.com/item/43848/how-to-crochet-a-tawashi is the link, and here's a picture I snagged from her website (since I can't find the picture I took of mine at the moment).
Isn't that cute? These are little scrubbies you can use to clean dishes, etc. I want to find some acrylic yarn and make some for bathroom cleaning since I abhore sponges (germs! ick!!). While browsing for more tawashis, I rediscovered this one: http://crochetpatternsonly.blogspot.com/2009/06/spiral-scrubbie.html. I've tried it before but I must have had brain fog, because I can do it now. LOL. Of course this YouTube video did help!
And this website (Naztazia.com) has a ton more videos and patterns. Darling!
So that's my current obsession ... er ... hobby. Just sharing!!
Pam - you've inspired me :)
