I received the Zpagetti t-shirt yarn free from Hoooked at the Creativation conference last weekend. The color I used is called Taffy Pink, but they have a whole range of pretty pinks and corals to choose from. I got this hook from Global Backyard Industries long ago, when I did a pattern for their t-shirt yarn kits.

I learned at Creativation that Hoooked Zpagetti yarn is environmentally friendly. Textile manufacturing creates an incredible amount of waste from selvages and cuttings. Hoooked recycles this textile waste into fabulous yarn!

If you’ve never worked with t-shirt yarn before, you’re missing out. It’s soft, surprisingly stretchy, and creates a dense, squishy fabric. Because it’s so thick, it works best with simple stitches and makes large projects really fast. I haven’t tried knitting with it yet, but I think I may need to sometime soon.
