Busy bee

I feel as though I have somewhat neglected my beautiful blog this weekend.
But fear not my faithful readers- I have been busy crafting and adventuring!!

Firstly: My Hooked Zpaghetti endeavour….
Well I must say that I was a bit over whelmed with it all when the parcel arrived. I was very unsure of what to do with it and how to use such a unique material! It was heavy and thick and unlike anything I have ever knitted with.
But I LOVED it!
After testing a bit out on some size 10 needles I decided it was a bit too heavy for a scarf but perfect for a cushion cover. I made two plain knit squares of 27 stitches and joined them together by weaving some hooked spaghetti yarn between the two.
Luckily I got several cushion inserts for free from work last week so my new covers have a home already!

I will certainly be buying more Hooked Zpagetti …. We love it!!
Two people suggested using it to make a bath mat-great idea!!!!

Secondly my work has begun on my hot water bottle cover for Curly Pops group entry to the Open Drawer Competition and here is a sneak peak of what I’m doing!!
Shhhhhhhh

I went to spotlight and spent too much money with Miss H- it was awesome. I got supplies for next weekends trip to the craft retreat and general spotlight crafty goodies!
Had a fantastic time with Lady S today in Melbourne. We went to the Markit@Fed Square and there were some Great things there( I will write about them during the week). Explored some lane ways,came across the most fab lookin chocolate(looked but didn’t buy)&visited Myers new Parfumerie and bought some very expensive but VERY yummy perfume. All in all a great weekend with no housework ! Just how I like it!!
