Re-use ideas

Just wanted to share this great idea for re-using sweaters. This is from Danny Seo, author of Green Living, as seen on Martha Stewart whole living.I esp love the cables on the chair on the left. I suppose one could knit her own chair covers, but for this sort of thing, thrifting seems the easier way to go. Plus you can frog the left-overs for yarn!

The other good idea was making trivets from wine corks. I like it, except the weird metal thing. Seems easier just to sew them together. I'll have to do this, and make sure to put the corks from the cheap wines in the center :).
