Recycle Knitting

Recycle Knitting with Author Veronica Bartles


It's amazing what you can do with some recycled plastic grocery bags, some knitting needles, and a little creativity!

I've become known as "The Bag Lady" around town. Several friends and neighbors save their plastic grocery bags and newspaper sleeves for me. I've had several people tell me that I should go into business, selling my Recycle Knitted creations, but I'm not ready to turn my fun hobby into a full-time job. I did set up an etsy site with a few of my projects, so you're welcome to look. But I'm a big believer in the DIY mindset, so I'm in the process of writing a book. I'll include the stories behind my various plastic bag knitted creations, tutorials on how you can create your own "plarn" (plastic yarn) and patterns for all of my fun projects, so you can make them for yourself! (As an added bonus, I'll even teach you how to make a drop spindle from recycled materials to make the "plarn" spinning super easy!)

How did I get started in knitting recycled plastic bags? Read the full story here.
