Woolly Balls, The Greener Choice

It’s not like I don’t have all kinds of things on my plate right now, I do. All non-knitterly things. Learning the language of databases, updating a citation tutorial, readings etc, etc. It’s just that I keep reading blogs, and looking at all the other wonderful things that people are making. And it makes ME want to make them. All of them. I good conscience I can’t drop everything and just knit. So I’ve got to weed.

The one that really stands out, (and seems somewhat do-able in a short period of time) I stumbled across on another blog. Not only is the project (somewhat) knitting related, but also environmentally friendly. It’s wool dryer balls. Yup, they’re pretty much what they sound like, a ball of wool that replaces the need for dryer sheets.

With them you’re saving the planet and getting ride of that extra yarn. A win, win in my books! Goodmama has a pretty straightforward explanation on how to make them, but there are many other variations out there.

Now if only I didn’t have to use coin laundry.

  1. What happened to the wool grammie gave you last xmas? I was thinking about it the other day. If you took a few strands at a time you could crochet a floor mat.

    Just a thought.
