Trash or Treasure?

I am usually the Recycling-Nazi of the home and office, so when I read in the latest Frankie that I could use what is normally considered as trash to make crafty home-wares and accessories I was quick to hop on the case. The clever people at Zpagetti recreate fabric off-cuts – which usually end up on the workshop floor – into fashionable balls of yarn that are strong and sustainable, perfect for knitting and crochet fanatics.

Seeing as I have been wanting to give crochet a try I purchased this starter kit which – fingers crossed – will turn into a lovely bowl for me to display my apples and oranges (not bananas because they are too expensive). The kit includes everything you need to make the bowl, including the pattern and a crochet hook – can it get any easier?

The pretty package will arrive on my doorstep in a couple of days so you should be seeing some progress soon! In the meantime here are a few of the yarns I am loving…
