I am by no means an advanced knitter, in fact, I really don't know how to do much of anything.  I can do one stitch, and am basically limited to scarves.

Anyway, I feel inventive having done this, but i'm sure it's probably been done :p

I crocheted the skein of yarn before I knitted it up, and got this.





It's really thick, and reallly stretchy.

So it's neat, (to me at least)  But I don't think it would be good for a scarf.  I'ven o idea what to do with it now, but I wanted to share, and see if this had been done a lot before.

You made your own bulky yarn. Great idea.

Oooo, great idea.  I have a sweater I unraveled that is 100% cotton and pretty thin thread, I might have to try something with that idea...  Maybe a hat?

That's great thinking!  I might use this idea, too.

How clever!  I don't think I'd have that kind of patience, but I love the chunky, detailed look.

I bet it's warm!  Smiley   Did you just chain, or single crochet before you knit (I think of sc as being in rows, so a long string of single crochet to knit with is a little hard to imagine)?

Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I crocheted the yarn by hand, so I don't know what that is. ^_^;;
