Earth Day

Let's celebrate together!

To celebrate Earth Day, I have been thinking a lot about reusing and recycling. As knitters we can do our part.  Let's knit some reusable items... coffee sleeves, market bags, produce bags.  We can all do something small...

Here are some photos to get your creative-juices going...

The above photo is one of our favorite patterns for a shopping bag. It is the stow-away shopping bag from Oat Couture.  It knits up great in any worsted weight yarn and holds everything you need for a trip to the grocery.

Below are some coffee cup sleeves, there are hundreds of styles that you can do.

Or , how about that perfect sweater, cowl, or hat that you will use again and again?  What will you be knitting for Earth Day?
