Summer of Garter Stitch
Log Cabin Lapghan (33" x 32") knit with scraps of Red Heart SuperSaver
Absorba (19.5" x 26") knit with 2 strands each of white and ecru Peaches and Creme, size 15 needles.
Next up for me: another Absorba (Christmas gift for Grandma) and a t-shirt rug.
From my Google searching it seems that the most common recipe for Calamari Knitting with t-shirts is to cut 1-inch strips and use size 35 needles. For those of you who have done this, is that right? How many shirts did you use?
Lastly, I noticed in the last Herrschners catalog that they now have 1 lb. cones of kitchen cotton for just $9.97. The brand is rather generic sounding (Village Yarn), but it comes in some great solid colors.
