Knitting with Noodles

Who needs to worry about the cost of yarn, when you can save yourself hundreds by using noodles! Not only are noodles cheaper, they are also must faster to prepare requiring just 2 mins in the microwave and DING! all ready to knit. Don’t just take our word for it, check out the Huffington Post story about Cynthia Suwito HERE.

Another way to save money and recycle at the same time is to knit with teabag strings. Irene from Kerang in Victoria, Australia reports it takes her more than 2,000 teabag strings and the same amount of cuppas to make one of her teabag string scarves. You can read more about her story HERE.
