rubber knit

The best thing about knitting is that you can use any material. And I mean ANY. I have seen and made knits out of bin bags, left over fabrics, old T-shirts, even out of Yvi. For this blog I tried to knit with a stretchy rubber fabric which I have cut into strips.

And I say tried to knit, because the rubber would stick to my needles like nothing else! I have tried with both plastic and wooden needles, but it was a fight. The end result are some nice pictures for the blog, but I would not recomend knitting anything else in this material!
