Let It Snow!
I ran across a red and white spread which I had crocheted many years ago, and stuck it in a drawer,never to be finished or used,so I decided to ravel it out and make something useful from the materials.I had been making dish cloths of yarn, and needed a few more red ones since they are so cheery and bright for the Holidays.That's when I stumbled across the unfinished spread.As I was unraveling the white, I found that I had used something other than yarn.It seems that I had used a stretchy fabric that holds a bed pad snug to the mattress.I had cut it into real narrow strips, and it worked up like yarn. Nevertheless, I unraveled it, and and proceeded to make a few Snowflake Coasters. What a neat idea. Now that is something that will definitely get used on a daily basis this winter. This is one example of a neat idea that produced a usable product from reclaimed materials. Now that's my kind of project.
