Rag Knitting

Old Sheets.     #17 Knitting Needles.

30 Years of knitting and I never knew you could knit with fabric!  (I’ve got lots of catching up to do)

So now I have a new favorite project.  

 A rug… Or bathmat.

They’ll be lots of people getting these for Christmas and birthdays in my family this year.

I’ve already rummaged through my house for sheets, (if they’re not on a bed they’re fair game)

and I’ve put the word out to friends and relatives to NOT throw away old sheets.

Cut into 1 inch strips and put strips together.

Roll into ball.

I cast on 27 stitches.

Knit 1 Purl 1 for the whole thing.

That’s it.

I love it!!!
