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…
