This is a scarf I made a few months ago out of hundreds and hundreds of strips of scrap fabric. I just tied the strips together, making for a very raggedy look, and knit it entirely in garter stitch. This is one of the more gratifying (and mind-numbingly simple) things that I've knit. It has little bits of metallic fabric through it randomly to add some glitz.   Cheesy


The scarf in its entirety.

...And modeled by yours truly with a cool flower pin.

I really hope you guys dig it as much as I do!

I realize this is a old thread but I found your scarf through a wist listing. It's absolutely breathtaking! I got out all my scraps and started hacking them into strips... I couldn't believe how much there was! I have nearly a grocery sack full! And I haven't even cut up all the fabric yet! I still have some metallics to cut and tons of cotton! I did decide that knots were probably too much for me as a newbie knitter. So I got out my portable sewing machine and zig-zagged stitched the pieces together. So far this is my "ball" or "yarn":

With my fist for reference:

And in my hand for size:

I'm not even halfway done yet! This is going to rock so much! Thanks for inspireing me!

This is really cool, and bonus points for reclying!  Now I have something else to do with my scraps.

Lately I seem to be most inspired by recycled projects...it's become a slight obsession. Now I need to find something to do to use up a good portion of my yarn stash. I have some good yarn that I'm just not interested in anymore. I was thinking about maybe having a little mini-swap with a few good people. Unloading some stuff we don't like anymore and getting some new stuff in return.
