So...while at Hobby Lobby tonight I was looking at cotton yarns for dishcloths/washcloths. I noticed the Senso and I thought it would make nice washcloths since it felt nice and soft, so I bought I couple balls. Then I came home and noticed that it was crochet thread. Silly me, not reading all of the labels  Roll Eyes

Now..would this be suitable to knit with, or would I be better off to just take it back and exchange it?

Crochet is just a suggestion - if you want to knit with it, then knit with it! Truly, all threads can be used as either knit or crochet - it is just a matter of needle size.

I'll probably just have to do some swatches to get an idea of what size needles I need to use and what adjustments I should make to the patterns.  Grin

Since you're making dishcloths, I wouldn't swatch it! I would just pick a needle size that gave a good sized stitch - not too loose and not too tight. and then knit to your heart's delight!

That yarn does feel nice, doesn't it?  I think I remember it coming in pretty colors, too.  You'll have to let us know how it works for wash/dish cloths.
