Last month I was perusing magknits and I found the pattern for the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle bag (http://magknits.com/May07/patterns/rrr.htm)! It looked very attractive to me as my closet is overflowing with plastic bags (where do they all come from? They multiply like Tribbles!).
So for the past month or so whenever I have gotten tense or stressed I’ve gotten my scissors and snipped up plastic bags. I now have them all cut into strips and started knitting last night. It’s awesome! I may never knit with yarn again!
You all should try this; I haven’t gotten this excited about a project in a while!
