Made With Zpagetti Yarn - Basket With Black Ribbon

I purchased the Zpagetti yarn at JoAnn's last weekend for $9.99.  If you're not familiar with this yarn, it's made from recycled clothing like t-shirts.

It took me about 1 hour to make the basket.  I used an "I" hook and followed my basket pattern that I have elsewhere on this blog.  I've got to say ... I love the basket.  However, my fingers still hurt 4 days later from the thickness of the yarn.  In hindsight, I should have used a MUCH larger needle.

If I make another basket with the Zpagetti yarn, I'll:

Make the yarn myself with old t-shirts.
Use a larger hook than "I"

Pretty, right?

At some point, I'll add it to my ETSY shop with my other baskets.  But for now, I'll post it on blog hops and on Pinterest to a board like this one:  POST 1, PIN 1.

Great basket! I haven't looked at yarn in a while so I'm surprised to hear about this one. I guess I'll just have to go check it out and send you some so I can get a basket. LOL!
