I constantly need to have my hands busy. Especially when I'm watching a show. I can't just sit and watch. No. I'd feel like I'm wasting time. If I'm not folding clothes or crocheting I turn to this soothing project during TV time: Making yarn.
I've made yarn from clothes before. But here I am making it out of sheets or old duvet covers. I keep this project in a bin and accessible so when the opportunity strikes I'm ready.
Just look at those beautiful balls.
We're planning on ripping out our carpet and putting in a laminate floor which means we're going to need some sort of area rug. That is what this will be for. I plan on making a rug but for that I'm gonna need lots of yarn. I've seen many methods but this is the one I use. The only difference is I cut them into 1" strips instead of 2".
My neighbour mention she has some old sheets that she's going to give me and I got so giddy when she mentioned it. They're Micky Mouse sheets, so you know those balls will be colourful. Umm, that didn't sound so good, but I think you know what I mean.
