What Other Material Have You Used?

For one of the challenges in Nerd Wars this month, it was “Alternate Yarnality.”  You had to use some kind of material that is not normally used in the craft….I chose Duct Tape..

I found some “Camo” duct tape and the little boxes reminded me of Replicators on Stargate…

So I cut it in two, folded it and cut it again…then rolled it into balls…

Then I crocheted with it.  It was difficult, as the glue kept gunking up the hook.  So I put lotion on the hook to help it slide better…

That's really cool! I have an old sheet cut up, balled up and I even started to knit with it to make a basket but it's been hibernating as it was hard on my hands. I think my crochet is improving, so maybe I'll go back to it.
