Poof! A Finished Object

A couple of weeks ago I was taking my morning shower when I noticed the pathetic and disgusting state of my nylon bath puff.  It was coming undone and had long, floppy appendages of droopy mesh that I had to scrunch up in my hand when I wanted to use it.  And there was a suspicious patch of darkness spreading from the center where the cord was attached.  Time to say goodbye.

Instead of buying a new one, i decided I would try to knit a replacement from my cotton stash.  NutmegKnitter was kind enough to lend me her copy of One Skein which contains a dead simple pattern: knit a tube, knit some i-cord, combine.  I made it even easier on myself by knitting it using Magic Loop instead of on double-pointed needles and omitting the 19-inch i-cord.

  • 100_4161

  • Pattern: Knitted Bath Puffy by Leigh Radford from One Skein (rav here)

  • Yarn: Sugar ‘n Cream in Landscape, 1 skein/120 yards

  • Needles: US 10.5 circular

  • Mods: I knit this in the round using magic loop. I knit until I only had a couple of yards left & cast off. Then I put the tail on a tapestry needle, folded the piece as directed in the pattern, and ran the yarn through the center. Then I turned the piece into a circular shape and wrapped the tails around and around the outside, using the remaining ends as a hanging loop. no i-cord needed!

This took a little bit longer for me to knit than I had anticipated, and I have been showering poofless for about 2 weeks.  Those beaded socks may have had something to do with it, I suppose.  In any case,  I am eagerly anticipating our first rendezvous this morning…

Come here, poof.  I’ve got plans for us.

  1. poofless for 2 weeks you better scrub good and don’t forget to do behind your ears!?! It looks great, but why did you take your poof picture by a moldy piece of cheese….

  2. Hey Ver! PeacefulKnitter likes to bathe with moldy cheese . . .sometimes it is hard to live with her. 🙂

  3. I have just found a use for the yarn that I was using for my CPH that is currently making my eyes bleed. yeah, I used to like it, I hate it now. just not me, very teal.

    it will become “Poof” and maybe even a soap pocket.

  4. Oooo…I’ve just started getting into knitting washcloths, it never occurred to me to try knitting my own poof also! Very cool, I think I’ll give that a shot.

  5. Um, showering poofless sounds like a sad experience. Glad to see you weren’t deprived for too long…

    It looks great, and any modification that involves getting rid of i-cords sounds like a good idea to me!
