Two first times with one project - crochet and t-shirt yarn

Crocheted squares

Last year I tried my hand at making t-shirt yarn. You know the one where you cut old t-shirts into strips and pull these into thick "yarn"? I cut 4 t-shirts and an old tricot shirt of mine and worked these into yarn. They "marinated" in my stash for a while, until a few weeks back I decided to see if I could crochet little baskets of them.

More Ruffles!

Ruffle yarn
Worsted Knitt

This ruffle yarn seems to be very "in" currently. I picked up some this summer from Finland. In fact, the brand I bought is a German yarn, which is pretty funny: travelling to Finland, buying German yarn and bringing it back to Germany :) But at that time, I had not seen that yarn here. Now it's everywhere!


So I made a scarf, too. I cast on 8 stitches, and knit until I had two balls used up. The result: a very ruffly, ca 180 cm long scarf.
