I bought some chunky yarn last year and I've been wondering what to do with them, until I saw these. Thanks for sending me this Rodrigo! I even have a few old IKEA lampshades lying around that I can knit around - perfect!
The lampshades were found by my friend Rodrigo on www.swiss-miss.com

I just found this here
Someone has knitted seat covers for the newly launched city bikes in London. Apparently there are little messages attached, which say things like:
"Approx 1 million tonnes of textiles are thrown away each year in the UK. Only 1/4 of this is recycled"
"74% of the 2 million tonnes of clothing we buy each year end up in landfills"
