Our new t-shirt bathmat is so cushy, smooshy, comfy, so much nicer on the bare feet than our old terry cloth one!
And since it’s 100% cotton it’s very absorbent, but I think the rather loosely knitted fabric will still dry pretty quickly. Happy, happy, happy!!
I just can’t figure how I have all this 1/2″ tarn (t-shirt yarn) left. Color me ‘bewildered’.
You know I did the math. Since my rug is 60% as big as the pattern’s and I started with 60% as many shirts as the pattern called for, I shouldn’t have much, if any, leftover!
The bathmat and the pile of tarn balls each weigh 1 lb. 4 oz., which means I used half. Hunh? The only explanation I can come up with is that the designer must have used all size Medium t-shirts, while I used 3 M, 3 L, 4 XL and 1 XXL. ?
I suppose I should be glad to have the extra tarn as a sort of ‘bathmat insurance policy’. If I should wreck this bathmat with hair dye, which is sadly what happened to our old terry cloth one, – oh, no no no, let’s pray that never happens to my pretty mat! – at least I could soon knit a replacement.
