Ok, so there are several fails here.
First off is Louie Lobster, which I made because I couldn’t think of anything ELSE to do with that hideous hot pink acrylic yarn I bought because it was cheap. I didn’t notice until afterwards that his tail was put together wrong (it was knit in 5 pieces and then sewn together). I also didn’t notice until it was too late that one claw looks rather wonky and was put on backwards. D: Wah.
Then Monday..I decided I just HAD to learn to crochet. Except there’s nobody to teach me except my good buddy Youtube. Compounding this little problem is the fact that I’m left handed which always makes things that much more complicated.
And last but not least is that shiny purple fun fur I couldn’t resist because it had been marked down from $4.99 to 71 cents. I had oogled it before but always passed it up because of the price. At 71 cents though, I couldn’t resist.
What came out of it though was Arnold the Blind Pygmy Puff (he has eyes you just can’t see them under all that fur). The pattern called to knit with 2 strands of fun fur and one strand of regular yarn on a sz 11 (I think it was) needle. With a ton of KFBs thrown in for good measure. Uh..how about no? I used a sz 15 (the largest needle I own) and it was difficult as heck with the double strand of fun fur and then a single strand of regular yarn. After a few minutes I said, “Oh bugger it!” and did my best to finish it off. I had intended it to be a toy for my son and instead it’s a cat toy. At least somebody’s getting some enjoyment out of it.
