A True Test of Patience

What's fun about the "Fun Fur" yarn?  Well, it's quite soft and squishy so I know I'll like the finished result, even if it's not for me.  BUT, this project is taking forever.  I thought I'd hold off on knitting scarves until I had more practice, but I guess the practice might just come in knitting scarves

  1. Hi Libby,

    I don't have experience with this yarn yet, but, have heard others complain of the same thing.

    I don't know if it will help you. But I read(haven't tried personally though) once to make the fun fur easier to crochet with to use another regular yarn along with it(same color).

    Don't know if it will work with knitting as well, but, it just might. Maybe you can try it the next time.

    Regards.

  2. I can't knit with those yarns either. I can't see the stitches clearly and I get confused. I've been playing in mind with the skein you sent me but still can't bring myself to make anything with confidence.

    Something similar happened with my Big Snow scarf, do you remember it? The green weird one. At the beginning it was impossible to make it work but with lots of patience I eagerly did it. Just don't give up. :-)

  3. well, those acrylic knitting needles are not helping you with that fun fur... if you used wooden or bamboo needles, it would help a bit.
