It got attention quickly didn't it? Actually I didn't realize what it sounded like until I came back to look at replies.

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.

Here's
a great illustration on making the fabric strips, from Rennagayle's link.

Craftster.org has a few threads where people have done strip crochet, using strips from plastic bags. Here's one. Here's another. Wild, huh?

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.

Thanks Kelly! I'm taking my time on that thing coz it's like wrestling with an alligator, you need a lot of manpower to do the strips tight on a size 15 so I only do a few rows in the morning.

Btw, I really really love that beautiful scarf thingy you made. Very intricate looking piece of work. Congrats!

shredding silk shirts?

Midnightsky... how do you do that... shred the silk shirts?
Sounds very intriguing. I'm going to learn to spin this summer and so maybe I could do that. You have some very beautiful yarns!
