Off the Needles: Scrubbie

When I was in Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I noticed this yarn called Red Heart Scrubby.  I bought a skein to try.  It has a rubbery plastic feel to it.  I held together 1 thread of Scrubby in color Ocean and 1 thread of Crafter's Secret Cotton in brown variegated.  I used size 8 knitting needles and it finished at 5".  It only took a few hours.  It's very stretchy.  I like my scrubbies to be smaller so I want to make another one that finishes at about 3".  I may also use a smaller size needle so it's more solid.
