Knitted bathmat - recycled fabric

I did this project as part of a KAL/challenge - it was fun finding the material (cotton sheets), ripping them into strips and then joining them to knit the cabled bathmat.
I used gigantic needles (15mm) and knitted the bathmat in 40+ degree temperature (I thought this would be a cooler option than knitting with wool).

that is amazing! I like it! I just put aside some used flannel sheets, knowing if I donate them, they will in up in the land fill!
What a great bathmat!
So glad to hear you are OK!
