Dishcloth Swap TOPIC OF THE WEEK

When you knit or crochet dishcloths, washcloths or face cloths, what do you use? What size needle or hook? Wood? what type? Metal? Plastic? A specific Brand? Why do you love that needle or hook so much? Is there one you are dying to try? Is there a particular yarn you love and use all the time for cloths? What is so special about it?

With dishcloths I usually use size 6 or 7 straight metal needles. While I love my KnitPicks Options circular needles for most everything, I do still like my Boye straight metal needles. The cotton yarn seems to slide easier on them and they have really sharp points which makes it easier I think. I use the wood needles for other stuff where I don't want it to easily slip off the needles.....

I don't think I'm dying to try any needles... I'm sure there are some out there that I haven't heard of but I like the ones I have at the moment. Don't like plastic needles... I'm willing to give any of them a try, I just might find some I like better, who knows...

I don't have a special yarn I like more than others, I haven't come across many yarns that I did not like!! :)
