I picked up some more Hoooked Zpagetti yarn whilst on my lunch break from work, can you believe I only paid £4.99 each for two balls of 850g (233 yards)?

Here are my latest findings which include an 8-bit Super Mario crochet bedspread, a Pac-Man quilt, a fabulous Doctor Who crochet tardis, a Space Invaders crochet blanket, and a Super Mario star baby blanket.
