Step 1: CUT INNER TUBE

first you need to cut the inner tube in a way that will be as long as possible.
_make a small cut in the inner tube, near the air valve(photo 1) ;
_start cutting along the circumference(photo2)                                             
_ when you arrive near your previous cut start to move your scissors on the right,you are deciding the thickness of your thread(photo3);
_keep cutting along the circumference until you finish the inner tube, maintaining the same thickness of the thread(photo4);
_ones you reach the air valve again cut it away(photo5).
I help myself doing this using my feet, otherwise is really slow(but I'm sure there's better way)

Step 2: MAKE a BALL OF THREAD

wash your thread from the white dust of inner tube.
take a cans of beer (or something else) and roll up the thread you made, better if flat.

Step 3: OIL NEEDELES AND THREAD

OIL REALLY WELL THE NEEDLES AND THE THREAD, or you wont be able to move it.

Step 4: KNIT

start knitting with your favorite stitch.

Step 5: CONNECTING THREAD

you can connecting the thread by sewing it (photo1), by cutting the edge of your thread smaller and make a not (photo2,3), or by make two holes at the end of each threads and passing one into others (photo4).
