Did I have fun last weekend looking for, cutting up and knitting together a bunch of old t-shirts:
It's just gardener stitch, all knit, and a row basically equals a tshirt.
I used 15mm needles, knitting with them is quite heavy on the arms as well as on the fingers. One or two stripes are all I manage at a time.
Still the project grows quickly and it's lots of fun. I can't wait to show the ladies in the library on Wednesday ;)
The rug feels very soft and it's very thick. I'm looking forward to using it. Hopefully I have enough old tshirts.
