Do you know what this is ...?

If you said " Why Sue, I believe that is a ball of t-shirt yarn - in fact the very first ball of t-shirt yarn made by your fair hand", then you would be absolutely RIGHT! Well done you! This stuff is so easy peasy to make - a few snips of the scissors and it is good-bye 5o cent Yarra Trail T-shirt and hello scrummy ball of yarn! Naturally this also gives me another excuse to hit the op-shops to search out old t-shirts. Now, I do in actual fact plan to knit ( Melissa, Kath get UP off the floor immediately!) this stuff into something natty - something that just involves a square or rectangle 'cos I don't actually know how to knit. Any suggestions?! Well, I will be working up to that. In the meantime, this is what I made with the short bits cut from the sleeves.

Frankly, apart from the scrumptious colours I am not too sure about this piece. I wanted to use the yarn to make bracelets but clearly today was not a bracelet day 'cos everything I tried looked awful. I just had to make something though. Maybe it will grow on me - in its favour it makes a quite nice "tinking" sound when the glass rings bump into each other! Now I just need to hunt me up some off those pointy sticks and learn to knit - how hard can it be ...?
