Fun Fur Friday

I've been busily knitting up novelty yarn hats for Kate and the kids at Children's Hospital.

Since last Sunday, I've made one from Lion Brand Fun Fur:

one from Patons Cha Cha (which was shockingly easy to knit with):

one from Bernat Frenzy:

and one from a double strand of some furry, uber-soft, 100% nylon yarn I bought at Target a year ago:

That brings my grand total to 7 hats in 7 days. Not bad.

Now that I'm ahead of the game, I hope to complete at least 1 hat each week until the deadline of February 28th. That should deplete my current stash of Fun Fur:

Several people have asked me privately why I seem to possess so much Fun Fur yarn. Most of the skeins were purchased years ago when my daughter and her friends clamored every summer for crocheted flip flops. And I bought several skeins last weekend when Jo-Ann Fabric had them on special for $1.00 a ball.

Can't beat that.


Running commentary on my unending quest to knit up my stash.
