At the beginning of 2009 a lady from one of my online quilting groups asked for tea bag strings so she could send to another lady who was going to make something out of them, I thought it a wonderful idea so gave my mum a challenge to do some thing also. She started to knit squares out of them to make a table cloth. When I saw how soft and lovely they where I started a project as well.
A crochet scarf was my first project, I then dyed a few and crochet some squares with flowers in them and made one into a pin cushion. Lately I have been fiddling with dish/wash cloths in both knitted and crochet form.
