Tuesday Inspiration

by Lynda July. 27, 2010 3102 views

I first posted some shots of a knitting project on my blog on 30 March. This is recycling plastic bags using strips of bag as yarn. It is known as plarn.

The previous shots served to illustrate a Tuesday theme for hobbies.

The fact that I'm still knitting the eco bag now demonstrates today's theme.

I would normally have finished the bag by now but the plarn is very hard on the fingers so you can't do much at a time.

I've not got much knitting left to do but then have to make some handles and sew it together. I've decided the next eco project using plastic bags will be less ambitious and probably entail making a small bag or purse rather than a shopper like this one.

This is a wonderful idea - to reuse the old bags to make new ones. Looks like your project is close to being completed. Good job with the bag AND the theme shots - very clear and detailed!

Love the composition of the first, you choose great colours. I have to laugh about Stéfan. Knitting keeps me calm and saved the life of my husband several times :-)).

Excellent idea for recycling plastic. I heartily approve. The images are fascinating and rather pretty, too. One thing, though: never let me see you actually knit. The repetitive process turns me into a slavering homicidal maniac.

Just thought you'd like to know...
