I often find that I can only get two dishcloths, or one dishcloth and a few dryer sheets out of a small ball of yarn. As you can imagine, this makes for several bits of unused fiber at the end of every ball that we buy. Ironically, I don’t have a lot of my own hand made dishcloths in my kitchen (many knitters will agree that its way more fun and productive to make things for other people)…but still, when I do knit myself some cloths, the bits of unused yarn will most likely continue to outweigh my need for dishcloths.
Enter the Frankenswiffer.
Despite living in an apartment that has laminate floors, I have yet to really get into the habit of Swiffering on a regular basis. This is partly due to not wanting to buy (waste) and not being able to afford (cost) the refill pads. So for my next in between project, I am going to fashion myself a reusable Swiffer pad or two out of my leftover yarn. Pictures to follow.
*Yes, I realize that is a misnomer because Frankenstein’s monster was unnamed so technically it should be the Jenswiffer, but meh.
