Rug Center Stripe WIP


Rug Center Stripe WIP
Originally uploaded by Disentangled.
I finally have something to show for my recycled bathroom rug project. It takes some time to knit because it is fairly stiff and I find myself holding the needles too tight and my hands get tired. This is approximately 2 evenings worth of random knitting and I'm alredy 2/3 of the way through the first large ball of red "yarn." I think that by the time I knit both of the balls, the rug should be about bathroom rug length.

Fortunately, I have my Denise Interchangeable Needles, so I will be able to make one long needle when I get ready to knit of the sides of this piece. Of course, the other option is always to make this center piece the width instead of the height. It will come down to how long I can make my needle with the extensions currently in my kit and not tie up my ability to work on my Kyoto.

Wow! That looks so perfect and regular compared to my thick and thin haphazardly cut "yarn".

The t-shirts were very easy to shred even the imperfections seem to disappear when the yarn folds during knitting. They did leave microscopic balls of shirt all over the place though - still haven't gotten it all picked up :-P

Looks really good so far- I can't wait to see the finished rug all knitted up!
