The best laid plans...

You know how it goes - we were all packed up to go to the markets yesterday - packed the car Saturday night to be ready - and then I wake up at midnight with my heart all racing, and out of rhythm - in Atrial Fibrillation. Se we couldn't go to the markets - :(

Anyhow - here are some things I have been making. These two bags were crocheted out of plarn. What's Plarn you say? It is yarn made out of cut up plastic bags - and then crocheted up. They are both lined with some fabric.


Also I knitted up this floor mat from a torn up sheet. It is so cuddly and warm on my feet.


So, if I haven't got enough things to make up crafts from - here I have some freebies to add to the pile....

Oh my gosh- your plarn is so cool- and you did such a nice job with the colors. I've heard of recycling your plastic bags that way, but not tried it. I'm afraid I might lose patience in the preparation!

My maths teacher when I was 14 made a hat out of bread bags. She tried to teach us but we laughed. She was admittedly utterly loony but I bet that hat would be the height of fashion today. I love your recent creations!

Janet - plarn is very retro! My grandma used to make coat hanger covers out of plastic bread bags torn/cut into strips. And that floor rug is so cool. What a neat idea. How will it wash?
p.s. hope you're feeling much, much better. Lisa x
