So last week I asked you to vote in a poll... about whether it was INSPIRED or INSANE to save teabag strings for the purpose of knotting them together into yarn...
The results were closer than I expected, but not surprisingly the insane vote won out:
The most received comments about this latest recycling phase of mine, went along the lines of:
"Don't you have enough to do with your time already?"
"Won't there be a lot of knots?"
And the answer is a resounding YES to both questions!
Yes, I do have a lot to do with my time already,
but this is Fun, Challenging and Free...
Yes, there will be a huge number of knots,
but I think that is part of the charm...
Like my Scrappy Blanket.
Remember I keep telling you to save your ends? Even the short ones?
Well I've been saving mine for a while now - and many of my Craft Buddies have been saving their ends for me to. Gotta love the enablers of the madness!
The ends have been knotted together...
and rolled into balls of yarn.
Then knit into squares
(mostly while I was pregnant with Charlotte, and a bit brain dead in the creativity department)
Then those squares sat around in a bag for a year and a bit...
And now they're becoming a blanket...
Aiming to finish it up today, so I can share a finished photo with you tomorrow.
(and best thing of all - NO ends to weave in!!!)
