yea kelly thats how i read the topic too...and said hmm this looks interesting...ahh well the topic is still interesting anyways

Ive knit with strips before, just be prepared to spend soem time hiding the knots if u dont want them, and for some fabrics to fray.

I tried knitting with strips from silk shirts from a thrift store with very good results (though personally ill stick to shreddign the shirts instead and combinging it with wool and spinning its first...). interweave knits (last issue?) also had some ideas on fabric strip knitting and recyclign yarns.
