I am a huge Knitpicks yarn lover! I haven't bought their Dishie yet. (I have Lily's stuff I am still trying to use up) Please how do the two yarns compare? I have been looking for something different because I feel like the Lily gets very rough and harsh (except for the newer releases) and the natural colored cotton. The colors, at least some, seem to fade quite a bit too. I don't bleach them but I do have town water and the chlorine might be making the cloths that way.

I used both Lily brand yarns and Knitpicks' Dishie while developing the pattern for the Clean Sweep. The Dishie yarn is a pleasure to knit with, as it is very soft before washing. It is a slightly thinner yarn than the Lily brand maybe a light worsted weight. I have well water and wash my dishcloths (most made with Lily brand yarn) and sweeper covers, at least weekly, in very hot water with no bleach. Both yarns become a bit rougher after washing. As you said, some colors fade more than others do, and this is true for both brands, although I think the Knitpicks Dishie does not fade quite as much.
Thanks for your question, MsMerricat!

Do you have this for crochet? I'm too lazy to figure out the pattern for myself :)

I'm sorry, but I do not have this pattern available for crochet. At this time, my crochet skills are limited to simple trims. Thanks for asking!
