DCS ~ Topic of the Week #2

When you knit or crochet dishclothes, washclothes or face clothes, 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 clothes? What is so special about it?

I used cotton mostly with 7 circs or a H or J hook. Metal of course and I prefer Boye. Boye circs with the black cord are smooth and easy to use. I've only used metal hooks and they too are smooth. I'm interested in trying KnitPicks Harmony needles. My particular fav cotton is Lion Brand but I do enjoy using Sinafora, Sugar n Cream, Peaches n Cream and a german brand I'm currently using for my partner but can't find the band at the moment to list. The Lion Brand is durable, smooth and very soft, it is also easy on the hands when using in 2 strands with a hook. ;)
