Calamari Yarn

i dyed some old t-shirts and ripped them all into strips.

Dscn1527



Dscn1528

and turned all that into a giant yarn ball weighing in at 5.2 lbs

not sure yet what i'll do with it.

Comments:
It would make an AWESOME rug, like the one in the book!!
 
Did you notice that you caught your cat mid yawn?

So cute!
 
looks yummy... what kind of dye did you use?
 
I can't say why, but that huge ball just makes me smile. It is so bright and cheerful and well big. Can't wait to see what you make with it :-}
 
hey thanks all! i used rit dye. i didn't worry too much about it dyeing evenly though since i knew i'd be ripping it into strips.
 
I've been wondering when we were going to see some of this stuff... I think you are the first - venturing into unknown territory.

I really want a rug too - Just not sure what I could use to make one. I usually (gasp) just throw away the old t-shirts - though I do have a "stack" of jeans... No somebody stop me! I'm already working on three light blue projects! LOL

i had a huge stash of brand new t-shirts that i would get for free over the years that i never could bear just throwing out. so glad i kept them.
 
I think the big ball looks great. After you dyed the T-shirts how wide did you tear the strips and how did you join them. Are the strips doubled? Ok more questions... what size needle would you use if it is double? As you can see I am really intriqued. I can't wait to see what you do and learn how you do it. I have three boys and am constantly purchasing undershirts so if they aren't too bad then maybe I could get away with it. I look forward to your photos.
 
That photo of your cat about to take a bite of calamari is too good. I can't wait to see what you make with the yarn.
 
knitnut -- in response to your questions. the strips are probably about 1/2 inch wide but i didn't measure. and i looped them together as described in the book. some of the loops ripped so i tied small knots. and i randomly choose the colors. i don't know what size needles to use. i have size 17 needles and a size P crochet hook.
 
Thanks for the info. I think it is a great idea and can't wait to see your results. Happy Knitting!
 
Awesome, can't wait to see what you are going to do with it!
 
I was searching the internet to see if there was errata for the burp cloth from Mason Dixon knitting and google directed me to your blog, but either I have over looked it or the answer isn't here. Can you tell me if there is errata for it?
