What's the strangest medium you've ever used in your crochet/knitting?
My absolute favorite crocheted project is a vase I made out of draperycord. The cord is about half an inch thick and very soft. I gave the vase to a really good friend of mine, but now I wish I'd kept it.
I've also crocheted with hemp, which is quite rough on the fingers.
How about you? What strange medium (other than yarn, thread, string, or twine) have you knitted or crocheted into a project?
I haven't actually knitted with the Boondoggling string, but I've been considering it for the last month or so.
For those who don't know, Boondoggling string is the rubber or plastic string that kids use to make those lanyards. I wanted to use it to create something that was waterproof, like a poncho raincoat or something.
Cut up sweat pants. Yup, old sweat pants in strips, to make a circular rug. size 15 needles. It's so much work, it's half done, laying in a bag somewhere. ha. It works thought, if you have enough muscles.
