Survey says...!

Survey in a second, I have to get this off my chest:
Yet another celebrity "I'm pregnant and beautiful" etc.....magazine picture . Do you care what Britney Spears is doing? I don't. Although, I will say that she actually looks healthy in these shots. A change from the anorexic, work out bunny look!

On to knitting stuff! I am so in love with the Mason Dixon Knitting book. A "warshcloth" swap is being organized by 2 fabulous ladies, so if you are interested, go here. Get your name in before August 5th!

I have finally completed the cutting up of t-shirts! Regular scissors gave me blisters and a very sore thumb. A rotary cutter gave me a sore wrist. However, spring clippers did the job! I have now completed the cutting and looping together of t-shirts! for those of you wondering how to loop them together, here is a pictorial:

(loop the bottom of the second rag thru the top of itself)

Then pull it tight, and you have a knot.

Loop a bunch together and you get this:

That's 5 &1/2 balls of "yarn" !

Onto the survey! What should I make with it? I could make a rug, but that is so plebian. I was thinking perhaps a "basket" or container of sorts. I'm just not sure if I can make it stand up straight, instead of flopping over. Any other ideas? Or patterns? Any and all suggestions are welcome.

First, re my new LYS. Probably a GOOD thing it's a bit of a drive. I have NO willpower in a yarn shop!

No clue what to do with your t-shirt yarn, but I love the idea of using it. I'll be watching to see what you turn out! I love spring scissors.

And I absolutely do NOT care what Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Brad, Angelina, Jen and Vince are up to. And I don't care what they look like either. I have a life that's busy enough with stuff that matters to me, and they just don't. The Yarn Harlot matters - now SHE's a celebrity! As are Ann and Kay.
