I've been experimenting with a couple of spools of Hooked Zpagetti I had in my stash. I started by trying to make a bag, but despite its diminutive size it was far too heavy. So I changed tack and decided to try a basket.
I spent an evening getting to grips (literally) with the yarn texture. I tried a square basket, but it wasn't square enough. Then a circular one, but it was a bit boring. I then just meandered around until I decided on a jar with a lid!
I have to say the Hooked Zpagetti is hard on the hands and the thickness is a bit variable. I do have tight tension, so maybe a larger hook would make it easier. I'm also going to try the Bobbiny t-shirt yarn from my local yarn store (www.Sconch.com) as a comparison. I know the owner has done a lot of research on these yarns. I'll report back on my experiences.
I'm very pleased with the result. I can just about get my hand in the top. My husband is now wondering what it can be used for. I'm thinking cotton wool balls in the bathroom? Any other ideas??
