I just found this great tutorial on how to make yarn from old T Shirts --  what a great summer project for getting rid of the shirts that don't fit, too many stains and holes to wear again.   I might even make some shawls.   Use the Dewberry Ridge Crochet Hooks and Knitting needles to make great looking, warm pieces.    We can post our pictures here.    Go to:
