Does making yarn from old sheets that you find in your linen closet qualify as Spring cleaning? It sure does in my book, ha ha! I opened my son's closet and the first thing I saw were a small pile of vintage comforter covers that sat in the attic for a good five years, and in one closet or another for another year or so. So at long last cutting them up into yarn is certainly a good thing to do, especially when there are much greater tasks to accomplish. But hey, those greater tasks can wait, those sheets were calling my name at long last!
This time, as I was making balls of rag yarn I decided to do a little experiment as far as rolling the balls. Because these sheets have a printed design, it's important to me that the right side of the fabric is the side that will be seen, and I'm thinking that a little pre thought in the rolling may make it easier to crochet with the pattern side out. Soooooo, I tried 3 different types of rolls: rolling with the strip flat, rolling with the strip folded in half, and rolling any which way, which is definately much much quicker! I'll let you know if I see any difference when I crochet these!
