My boss is crazy for knitting with VHS tape. They started doing it at Parsons in the 70's, and he still adores the texture.
Emma told me at our knitting group Saturday that she'd thought about using audio tape, too! I think it would have been easier to knit because it's thinner... maybe as a fringe to video tape scarf? That could be a weird, wearable tribute to the digital age! The tape was a little tight to knit and "crunchy" is the only way I can describe it but it looks kind of glittery and jewel-like when it's done. And it's really easy at least with VHS because it's already on a spool and you keep pulling it out as you need it--no tangles! It's not really soft, so it would probably make a good purse like some of the other entries have done! Maybe I need to start working on the rest of our tapes!!
