Maybe we could have a challenge to produce something that is made not of yarn, but of something new and fun? such as paper or string? Anyone with me?

Well if you want sexy there is of course 302 calories. I think this wire bracelet is very beautiful too.  More ideas would be great.  Fun!

I love this idea:  twine, strips of plastic bags, yellow construction tape, etc.  I don't know where to start. 

But please wait a week or so to start.  I'm new to Craftster and not supposed to take part in a challenge until July 7.  Thanks.

you can also cut different sorts of fabrics (or old/unwanted clothes too!) into thinner strips and crochet/knit them. Ive seen some very pretty handbags from this method.

Oh and hemp is awesome crocheted. I made a candle wrap once out of hemp and it looks pretty cool. Ive heard other sorts of industrial string work great. Wire too.

This one sounds fun. There are lots more thrift store possibilities also, maybe you could use wires from old lamps or appliances that have broken.
