well heck. this is an old topic but just last week I sat down on the floor of my bedroom and cut up a bunch of old sweat pants & sweat shirts and started knitting them into a rag rug. So far, it looks fantastic which is hard to believe.
Size 15 needle. Takes a LOT OF EFFORT if you know what I mean.
Why buy strips from Walmart when you probably have lots of old clothes you can't stand around?
It's fun and funny. I think I'll like this little rug.
