Genuine Fake And Stash

Does this photo needs further comments... LOL!!
I am not tired of making pom poms of yarn. But I suddenly wanted to try out how my new scarf would look with fur pom poms.

Now, my cat is still alive. And no other animals have been hurt in this story.

Because, the fur is fake. Pure and genuine fake. They look real to me.

But I am no expert. The only fur thing I know about is this four legged fellow, the previous mentioned cat.

I have used stash yarn for the scarf.

So why would I buy expensive fur pom poms from real fur when I can get them looking like this?

I must say they were a nightmare to sew on.

There were these little threads on them but they were so bad I had to sew.

As I have told you before - I do not like sewing. At all!!!

But I think I somehow manage to attach them properly. It would be rather embarrasing if they fell off into a salad bar in some restaurant. See, I look healthy...

I could have said the dessert bar, but I did not. After all, image is everything. LOL!!!

Now, the pink color is so nice.

It is pink but not baby pink and still wearable for people over the age of 7 years. I like it actually.

I have not knitted a lot in pink but this gave me a desire to do it again. Will there be another pom pom scarf? That is the question...

Eyeball Pom Pom

You may have to use loads of eye drops if your eyeballs were of wool. Not to mention the slight problem with seeing...

Anyway, another stash scarf with pom poms. I like those heavy ends of the scarf.

Makes it very easy to wear and gives a playful feeling.

I used two colors for the pom poms. I have called this sméar which is irish for berry. I simply love Ireland.

Just to try it out and use more stash. I am a little proud to have used that much of it.

Although I could mention some purchase of yarn. But I will not say that out loud. Oh, I just did? LOL!!

You have seen the scarf before in turquoise. I must say that I also have knitted a pink one... Of stash of course.

Dr Martens is a knitters friend
Do I ever get the chance to use all my scarves? No, but so much fun it is to knit them. And try to give some of them away. Gift knitting is not all that fun. But if I knit something I really enjoy, never use it and give it away, I think it is even better than a ordinary knitted gift.

Behind every great knitter there is a huge pile of yarn
