I needed to find a way to use up some cardboard in the bias tape/ric-rac pkgs!

Now that is a clever idea!

lol, I should definitely be in this craftalong... I swore myself off buying new supplies a few months ago, and I have about 7 large bins of yarn, and all sorts of other stuff I need to get through.

Hrm, I think I'm going to have to make me (and others) some bookmarks...

I think the newspaper yarn would do well for crocheted baskets. I'm not entirely sure how you crochet a basket, or even how you do it with newspaper yarn, but I'm sure someone, somewhere has found a way to make it doable.

I don't know how to crotchet so I can't answer that specifically, but apparently newspaper yarn is surprisingly strong. I have a few projects lined up to try it out (with knitting and weaving) so I will let you know!

All this newspaper yarn talk has me wondering.. you can't get it wet, right?  so I wonder what that limits you to in terms of final project... baskets, sure.  but what else?  art?  maybe a rug in a bedroom?

Maybe not if you have small children.  I can just see this after a toddler pees on it.  Shocked

I have the most awesome tote bags made from newspapers and also wine carriers!  They are sewn together but they have some sort of coating on them that keeps them waterproof...I would like to spin some newpaper yarn to make some cute firestarters...just for fun...it would be nice to just experiment with it...I am sure there are plenty of ideas out in the interweb!
