I bought Zpagetti
It was not my intention to buy anything at the Lion Brand Yarn Store when I went there two days ago. I went in with the sincere intention of doing some innocent lèche-vitrine but ended up leaving with a few balls of yarns. Anyways, I discovered their new line called Zpagetti made out left over fabrics from factories. T-shirt yarn is not something new. It has become a very popular way to recycle old t-shirt and also old sheets around the house. What makes this yarn so exciting is that you won’t find the same color and pattern combination twice according to the website. So you better stock up on your favorite right when you see it.
The big hick for me was the price almost $10 for 55 yards! Making me think that I should just go to the Fashion District, get some t-shirt fabric and make my own yarn…(What an exciting thought! I should really do it.)
So, as usual I am beating myself up trying to think about what would be a perfect project: a hair bow, a bag, necklace, etc. I told myself to work a few swatches first and try it out. The direction recommend using a size 15 knitting needle but in my opinion a 17 would be best. This yarn is not for the faint of heart and the tight knitter like myself. It’s a pain in the butt! This yarn could make extremely beautiful rugs but at this price I doubt I want it on the floor. I was not able to come up with something but I think it has lots of potential. With that said, tomorrow I am going to get more.
