Okay...for those of you who don't like to knit with acrylics because they mess up your hands...don't try knitting with plastic, either.
I am currently in the middle of a recycling project/birthday gift and after just a few inches, I am seriously reconsidering.
I am cutting up grocery sacks into long stips and attaching the strips to each other and then knitting with the "yarn" this creates. I am making a large tote bag for my mom for her birthday...she is obsessed with beach bags, and this would be a dandy.
Meanwhile, it's got a weird texture and it sticks a bit to the needles. The fabric it is creating is incredibly strong and has a nice "give" though. I am going to like the finished project...if I can just hang in there!
This is another project on my list that I'd like to get done soon. I've been collecting bags to put in the recycle bins they have at some of the grocery stores, but I'd much rather just have a few to bring in myself.
My b/f and I never do that much grocery shopping, so we wouldn't need that many.
