Green stuff

The latest project – a green, “green” stole, knit out of recycled t-shirts – the ones too ripped, stained, shapeless to donate.
Linen stitch makes a flat stole with straight edges. Dividing each t-shirt strip (you cut them in a spiral, like peeling an apple in one strip) in two makes it (more or less) symmetrical.
Cool for campus ministry, summer services in the great outdoors where everyone who’s anyone is wearing a t-shirt, and any venue that appreciates reusing, recycling, and creativity.
Finished photos coming soon!
