Stash Buster- Bath Poofs

While searching for quick but cool Christmas gifts to knit, I discovered this pattern for a "bonbon", or bath poof. I used a skein of Mango Moon I've had for quite a while, and big needles- size 15, my FAVORITE! Instead of just knitting straight, I did a little feather and fan action to make it a little more jazzy. It only took an hour and I used it in the shower last night. Unfortunately, the Mango Moon wasn't the best choice of yarn, as it lacks necessary scrubbing action needed to make a good bubbly lather. I have some bamboo and some nettle I'm going to try next, or there's always good old fashioned cotton!

Ah yes, nettle would be great. You're so creative - just one hour and poof! there is a pouf!
