While waiting for my husband's during his day surgery last year I visited with another woman waiting for her husband's in day surgery!
She was "knitting" plastic grocery sacks! She cuts them into strips and ties them together...winds the strips into balls...and knits them!
They become big bowls for the floor, waste baskets, totes, etc.
They were very beautifully done!
I've gotta remember to do this! :doh:
