i want to know everything about this, like, now.
seriously, that is *ultra* lovely! is that based on a pattern, or was it your own design?

yeah, i think you would definitely need more shirts for a bathmat. each of my cloths are about 17x20cm. i think tye-dyed shirts would look great though. please post pictures if you ever do make that bathmat!

i read about using old t-shirts as yarn aaaaaaaaaaaaages ago, but just never really got myself together and went through my closet to harvest material. well last night, i finally gathered up some old t-shirts, scissors and patience, and voila! these three dishcloths are the product of two small cotton t-shirts that i cut up into strips and tied together to form the yarn. on the white one i just did a plain stockinette stitch with a 2 stitch garter edge on the sides. for the beige one i did stockinette stitch with no edging. and for the two-toned one i did plain stockinette again. the whole thing took about two hours from start of cutting to completion of knitting. my one tip is to make sure then when you tie each strip together, you give it a nice yank first in order to stretch out the cotton. im totally going to make more of these as they are marvellous for wiping up excess water around the sink after dishes, face washing etc. im actually planning to use the plain white one as a shower puff substitute since it is a little bit stiffer and will provide good exfoliation while i suds up.

the stitch pattern is the "welted rib" stitch, which i found in a knitting stitch directory i have.

i have been knitting for over 4 years now, and have made many *MANY* projects, however this week i actually knit my first dishcloth. so weird that i never did it before, but here it is in all it's simple glory. i used bernat handicrafter cotton, double stranded it, and banged out four of these in less than 2 hours while watching tv. i gave two to a coworker today, and saved two for myself. i have yet to actually use one and see how effective/ineffective it is, but i'm pretty excited about finding such pleasure in such a basic little project.

ok, so i made another one of these hats a few weeks ago for my manfriend!

i used the debbie bliss cashmerino chunky wool in this gorgeous chocolate brown on US 10 needles. the yarn is a *dream* to work with and the whole thing knit up in no time. the boy LOVED it btw Smiley unfortunately i don't have any pix of *him* wearing it, lol.

so, i've made this hat a BUNCH more times, and here are some pix of my most recent completions.

i made this one for a co-worker x-mas gift exchange. the yarn was vanna's choice and i held two strands together on US10 needles. i think i CO 68 stitches, and once again did some wonky on-the-fly decreasing at the end.

this one was knit for myself, and i switched up the pattern a bit. i CO 60 stitches on US10 needles for the ribbing, then i switched to US 13 for the body of the hat. it made for a much more open, almost lace-like, pattern and i LOVE it! i used paton's merino in peacock, and again held two strands together throughout.

29  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: um... what to do with these? on: January 14, 2009 07:42:08 AM
a teeny tiny candle holder?
stick it to a wall or cupboard and use some of the holes to hang earrings in?
um....yeah, i got nothing else, lol.
let us know what you decide to do though!

here's my first attempt at fingerless gloves, and *OH MY STARS* what a success they were! this pattern is lovely. i used red heart soft touch yarn, which is surprisingly UN-yucky feeling next to my skin, and the colours are just so nice and saturated! i made the wrist part about 10 rows longer than the pattern called for, in order to prevent cold chills from creeping up my coat sleeves.

this is probably the most true depiction of the yarn colour
