J-yarn - WIP

I am in the middle of something interesting. I have a few pair of jeans in my closet I haven't worn for a while. And as well as I have already worked with T-shirt yarn just came to mind why not to cut them into strips and crochet something from them?! (Tell me it's not weird that I want to crochet with everything...)

BEFORE:




AFTER:


I call it j-yarn. It is easy to crochet with it and has an interesting texture. I simply like the way how it turns. This piece will hopefully be a basket for my craft supplies. 
Do you have any experience to knit with jeans? 

I am participating in the following WIP Wendesday parties:

  1. So interesting. I want to crochet with a t shirt sometime but I've never tried. Just something to add to the list!

  3. I definitely have to try this, I have lots of non-fitting jeans I could use, and the way your yarn is working up looks pretty awesome, I love the way the unravelling threads look. (Great photos, too!)

  8. No experience here, but you are making me very, very sorry that I recently donated all of my old jeans to charity! I know they will be well used there, but I want to try my hand at a basket!

  10. Interesting idea! A few years back I crocheted a large kitchen thrown rug from strips of old jeans. I loved the way it looked. It was hugely heavy in my washing machine when it needed washed and took a couple of warm days to dry. It finally fell apart and your post reminded me of the wonderful blues and texture. Maybe it's time to make another one?
