Me and ANita Loos


Sometime in the early 1970's I read an article in McCall's magazine about Anita Loos, a playright and author, and her knitted washcloths. I had already read about Mary Martin and her needle point. The needlepoint article cost me money as needlepoint became and still is an obsession and is not cheap! When I read the Anita Loos aticle I thought I could do that for less money and started an obsession for my husband.
Ms. Loos used Knit-cro-sheen held double and I think it was size 5 needles. Since then I have moved to many different threads including organic yarn, and other knit/crochet threads. I knit at least one a year for my husband who loves to wash his face with them. While I spend a fortune on face cleansers he uses a handknit washcloth and his face is a soft as mine. The only problem with the article is Ms.Loos took about 3 hours while waiting back stage and I take a lot longer than that. Of course,  hers were mainly in garter stitch while I love patterns. This one has a twisted drop stitch and was a lot of fun to knit.
It is a great stocking stuffer!

It's nice to see how the annual washcloth started. Nice story. I can't believe that you have two postings so close together. So my nagging, no eruging has helped? Howdy from Raleigh!
