A couple of weeks ago I asked my grandmother to keep an eye out for old sheets she didn't want anymore. I've never done any crocheting with other materials such as cloth or plastic bags, etc. and I thought a rag rug would be the perfect addition to my dad's RV. Last Saturday my grandmother delivered the goods (three sheets she no longer needed) and tonight I set about cutting one of them into one inch strips and winding it into a ball.
The cutting went much faster than I expected but I still only managed to get two-thirds of it cut before my neck and back needed a break. Now I have to get my hands on a "Q" hook, find the pattern I saw that inspired me in the first place, and finish cutting up my sheet. I'm hoping I can have it ready for our next camping trip which will be some time in November.
I've also got four spools of streamer ribbon I've been dying to try out but I have no idea what to make with something that will end up being so stiff. If you have any suggestions please leave me a comment.
