We enjoy the fuzzy wool yarns at craft stores as much as any other knitter, but did you know that yarn doesn't have to be made from wool or any of the typical yarn fibers? In fact, you can make your own yarn at home. Don't worry, we're not going to put you in front of a weaving machine.
Rather, one of the easiest ways to make yarn is simply by cutting up an old bed sheet into small ribbons, which eventually form a ball of yarn to be used in normal knitting projects like rugs and Afghans. Watch the video for the bed sheet yarn how-to.
