How to make T-shirt Yarn. One of my best friends came to stay with us over the weekend and she showed up with a fun little craft project for us to do together. She showed me how to make t-shirt yarn and then how to finger weave a necklace! It was very simple and the possibilities of what you can do with the t-shirt yarn is endless. I can't wait to think up more t-shirt yarn projects. First things first. You need be a little bit picky about what kind of t-shirt you choose to cut up to make your yarn. Now that you have picked out a suitable t-shirt for your yarn, lay it flat and cut off the bottom seam and the top portion, right under the armpits. Fold what is left of the t-shirt in half but leave about an inch hanging over as in picture below: Now cut your shirt into about 1 inch strips, STOP cutting right after the first edge.

You will not cut all the way through the shirt. Now unfold your strips and start to open up the end of the shirt where it is still connect.

Falling in Love! | Diabollical Knits. Knitting on Paper – Laylock Knitwear Design. I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that one of my new year’s resolutions for the past TWO years has been to knit a Fair Isle slipover, possibly with matching socks or legwarmers (& a jumper for Teddy?) And I haven’t even come close to designing one.

The trouble is that there are so many wonderful possibilities! Where to begin? More Fair Isle inspiration on Pinterest. Do I want colours of similar hues, or do I want to mix them up? What about keeping the background colour constant throughout? With so much to keep in mind, I thought it would be better to start small, and use this knitting paper I designed to doodle Fair Isle patterns I liked, when I came across them. (more on that later) gave me a head start on patterns, and when I have time I’ll be working through her Fair Isle course on Craftsy. Once I have the patterns I like, I can cut them out in strips and play with the positioning until I’m happy with the way they look together.

Inspiration comes from quite the variety of places, from beautiful movie stars of an earlier era, to runway looks of today, to vintage pattern photos to YEP, that’s right, Slick Watts circa 1979 Seattle SuperSonics. You must forgive me, I grew up in Seattle and this team and especially this guy with his jaunty ever-present headband captivated the city as they brought home the only men’s professional sports championship this town has seen since, well, ever.
