Free Yarn...AAACK...MY EYES!


Today's mail brought a free ball of Bernat Disco yarn. Now, I don't want to sound ungrateful...free yarn is free yarn, y'all. But this stuff is fugly. Maybe in an endearing kind of way. It sort of reminds me of Cookie Monster. If Cookie Monster was a drag queen.

Then again, I've never met a ball of yarn I didn't like, and I'll find something to with it. Any ideas?

Knit a teddy bear shaped critter. Leave off the ears. Put some big googly eyes on top - presto: Drag Queen Cookie Monster.

Good idea, Erica...I even have the googly eyes. I think, though, the drag queen yarn will become trim on a scarf for my mother-in-law (not a drag queen, but attracted to the bling).

I'd reccomend a cookie monster hat for halloweeen. Or maybe a scarf for a child who likes really bright colors.

I am not a huge fan of furry yarns but the kids love it. I made a scarf for my niece, Mia, last year with fun fur and a jiffy quick yarn (I may have the name confused with a muffin mix) and she LOVED it! But I must agree it looks like someone has skinned the cookie monster.
