Earth Day Yarny Up-Cycles

Knitting is by very nature an earth friendly craft.  Especially when you are replacing consumables with reusables, like the dryer sheets I mentioned above.  Up-cycling previously used materials into a knittable yarn is not only brilliant, it’s cost effective, eco-friendly and just freaking awesome.

Hand Knit Dish Cloth, especially when they're done in 100% cotton, is another DIY you'll feel great about. Extra points for using bamboo knitting needles.

Dish Cloth

Dish cloths are great beginner projects because they work up quick, and provide something useful as the finished product – which in turn can be extremely satisfying to use or to gift.  They are also great projects for advanced knitters, as you can work them up en mass, and stockpile for gift giving.  This pattern is done in the currently popular waffle stitch.
