Plarn It! Has she really started knitting again???
The last time I picked up the needles was March 2006. And I haven’t actually picked them up again yet. However, I did stay up all night on July 3, watching movies and making this big “yarn” ball (a.k.a. “plarn”) out of plastic grocery bags. (I should categorize this post under “Projects for Obsessive Insomniacs.”)
Did you know that crafty people are finding all kinds of uses for plastic bags in order to save them from the landfill? Here are just a few:
- Instructions for creating the plastic bag “yarn”
- A knitted plastic tote bag (they use a different method for creating the yarn)
- Fused plastic bag fabric
- Here’s an article on TreeHugger about all kinds of plastic bag DIY projects.
So what am I going to knit with this ball of nontraditional yarn? Stay tuned…
Wow, beth… all those plastic bags-
What are you gonna do today?
Oh, yes. I refreshed, and now the comment numbers are correct.
Also, I really enjoy figuring out the distorted letters in order to post.
Hey, even though there are two comments on this post, the box at the end of the post says “0 comments”. The same thing happens on the other post on which I placed a comment. Hmm. Maybe I have to refresh or something?
Do the fish have large talons?
You took my joke! I was planning to use it soon. But fortunately, most people probably don’t know what you’re talking about.
Hey, did you know that if you subscribe to my blog, all your wildest dreams will come true?
Also, what do you feed fake plastic fish? And when you feed them, do you have to yell, “Tina, EAT the FOOD!!”?
