strips and two mats

I had a go at a bit of 'extreme knitting' (See link below) to make a thick cushion mat for a dining chair. I used 6 strands of wool (varying from dk to chunky) on 15mm needles. Its created a thick soft fabric that softens up the chair just enough. I would really like to do a blanket in the same manor maybe with even more wool.

The second photo is of a small bathmat I knit out of ripped up tshirts. I'm going to give it to my mum for her new shower room.

The third and final photo is of some more knitted stips for the Craft Centre.
