I was young, naive. Nineteen. I had only ever bought yarn from charity shops. And then, I walked into a shop that sold new yarn. And, funky fur.
I bought it. It sat in my WIP basket for literally years, waiting to become a scarf. One ball of blue funky fur was used to knit a ten-stitch garter stitch scarf. It was dull. Boring.
I was obsessed with fish, and had a 300 litre tank in my lounge. I took inspiration from my Oranda fish, Ory. I used Ravelry to find Cara Clark’s pattern, “Fish for Penguins“.
The Aquarium Scarf was born.
But I have more Funky Fur
I now have 8 more balls of funky fur to use up…I don’t know what I’m going to do with it. I hated this project so much that it sat in my UFO pile for ages, and the only reason I’ve finally finished it is because I’m determined to clear out the bag holding them all.
I have been hexipuffing again, which has been fun. I don’t think funky fur hexipuffs will work though. Do you have any ideas of what I can do with it?
Facebook and Ravelry
On Facebook, when I reach 200 fans I will do a draw and pick one of those fans in a time-honoured random fashion. The winner will win a £5 Amazon gift voucher, or the equivalent in your chosen currency!
I will be doing a similar thing on Ravelry, with the target being 100 members in the Plutonium Muffins group. Instead of an Amazon gift voucher, I’ll gift a pattern of the winners choice up to a value of $6 or the equivalent.
I wish you all the best of luck! I want to return some of the love, and this seems a good way. Links in the relevant places!
