T-Shirt Yarn

I really don't need another fiber addiction, but after seeing several different tutorials and projects using t-shirt yarn and then finding a stained t-shirt or two while sorting through last year's summer clothes I just had to give it a try!  To make the yarn I followed the tutorial at Craft Passion and in just a few minutes I had a beautiful ball of t-shirt yarn!  An old stained t-shirt will now have new life as....something.  Maybe a placemat, hotpad or dishcloth OR maybe I'll cut up a few more t-shirts so I can make a larger project like a rug or a blanket.  Oh, the possibilities...

How interesting, I'm tempted to give it a try myself but I know I can't squeeze any more ideas to try in my schedule right now.
