I made a post a few days ago about t-shirt yarn. Well now I'm working with it, and look what I'm making:
Very cool ! I've made a couple of rugs, shower scrubbers & bowls from tshirt yarns ! It's fun but my hand tires too quickly :cry:
Looks good so far. I haven't seen the yarn yet but it sure would be soft and knit up rather quickly.
I'm wondering if the t-shirt 'yarn' would be easier to work with and smoother on the hands if pulled through the little gadgets used for braiding rugs. Just a thought.
Is it an afghan? Thanks Christine, she has such an interesting sight.
I'm so interested in recycling that I think I will try this. Thank you.
I think knitting with t-shirts sounds very interesting. I have this on my "to do" list. I am currently saving old shirts from my children. I'm thinking that by the time I actually muster up enough courage to try it, I should have a large enough stash of shirts without needing to go to thrift stores.

no mine is a rug.
is this like the old "rag rugs" that were popular in the 50's....
what size needles do you use?
I have not knitted only crochet, 5mm or larger hook. Yes rag rugs :P
Thank you for the post of how to cut the yarn. I had a plan to do this, but had not thought that far ahead yet. I would have cut it all apart and sewed the ends together. Or tried to cut it circularly. duh? Thanks!
