Recycle Trash Into Awesome Knitted Stuff

tshirtrugenjoyedA few months ago I posted a video and pattern about turning old t-shirts into a rug.  Until I was recently contacted by Recycled Into Yarn, I had no idea how many ways you can reuse old t shirts and curtains and jeans and plastic bags in knitting!  My t-shirt rug pattern is featured there this month.  🙂

Once I’ve worked through my next couple of queued projects, I want to cast on for this t-shirt yarn bag that I found there by Randi of Dukes and Duchesses.  I don’t think I’ll ever throw away another stained shirt or tattered sheet again.  Who knew about the knitting potential of all these unwanted things?!?

There’s even a free pattern for turning plastic shopping bags into a pair of slippers.  I wish I had stumbled across this site and these ideas sooner.  But, for now, I’m plugging away on my skew socks and getting ready to swatch for my Bill Cipher sweater.  So excited for the new sweater.  🙂

    1. 🙂 I keep a similar queue that exists in my head. I never consult my ravelry.com queue but it doesn’t stop me from clicking the ‘add to queue’ button! I probably have over a hundred patterns in there.
