Over the last few days I've been busy making the above balls of tarn. Nigel and I had a massive clearout of teeshirts and instead of chucking them I am sitting and cutting them up to make balls of teeshirt yarn. I found this YOUTUBE tutorial very helpful (although the woman in the video is a tad annoying at times). Another YouTube tutorial for joining strips of yarn can be found HERE .
The picture on the right is my tarn rug project, I'm using a big fat 12mm hook and single crochet and it is quite speedy to do although I can only do a couple of balls worth a day as it is quite hard going the makes my hands ache so its a bit of a long term project. I'll post more pics as it grows!
