it’s not easy being green

i made this

out of some of these

if you are thinking, she made a plastic bag out of plastic bags, you’re right. and now – i’m quite sure my footprint is like one size smaller.

when i first started on it and bh didn’t know exactly what i was doing he looked at my work in progress

and worried that it would be awful itchy and very impractical.

if you want to know how to make plarn go here. and the pattern i used? this won’t be all that helpful, but i googled hobo bag knitting patterns and then just kind of winged it.

  1. That is amazing…I want to make one too, but I guess I need to learn to knit first.

    you can crochet them, also. if you know how…

  2. Okay i was a little worried by the work in progress it almost looks like a bikini top! It is pretty cool I too don’t know how to knit so I guess I cant make it!

    i didn’t realize what it was until bh mentioned it…

  3. You’ve inspired me. I’m going to have to try this. I can’t wait.

    it was really pretty simple. you’ll do great, i’m sure.

  4. I have to admit, I wondered when I first saw that picture! Very crafty. Very cool

    thank you!! i love it, it’s very strong and can hold alot…

  5. I’m with Carrie, I thought it was a bikini top too…you would HAVE to wear sunscreen if you wore that top!! 🙂

    oh, there would be several other things i would have to tend to before i even got to that bikini top!! 🙂

  6. that’s hilarious. my oH will be proud!! i’ll tell him all about it

    let him know that we are now the posterchildren for green!!
