Knitting with Fabric
.. I love to quilt and knit.. I saw a kit that would be the best of both worlds. Have any of you knitted with fabric? There were some really great bags to make. Happy Sunday! :sunny:

I saw a kit for a knitted fabric purse at Joann's the other day and I thought it looked like fun. I am definately going to try one after some of my WIP's get completed.

Hiiiiii! I sat down a month ago and took all my old sweat pants (red and blue and baby blue) and cut them into long strips, about 1", and then got out my No. 15 needles and started making a rag rug.
Oh, when you cut things up like this you create one continuous piece, it's a little challenge)

I don't know what possessed me to do that since I have all this beautiful handdyed wool waiting...

maybe I just wanted to get rid of the sweatpants. Anyhoo, the rug is looking really neat and it's so funny to think it was sweatpants.
I only work on it every few days because it's HARD work, very muscular. I think some bags would be really great knit up with fabric. But you might have some of your own stuff to cut up rather than buy it? (Well, I do, like old dresses I hate...)
