The other day, I was perusing the Ravelry forums when I happened upon another yarn hate topic. These are common. There are certain yarns that the average knitter just hates. And most of the time, I agree with the prevailing sentiment.
The yarn under attack was Fun Fur. For once, I was in the minority. I like Fun Fur.
Of course, I don't make large projects from it. Who would want a scarf made entirely of Fun Fur? Ick. But in small doses, it's a fun little novelty yarn.
I make lanyards from it. I make earrings. There was a cute toy made from the stuff at the Orange County Fair (if I ever find the pattern, I'm so making the thing). So, it has its uses.
I guess I shouldn't mind too much. More Fun Fur for me. But if too many knitters hate the stuff, then they will discontinue it, and I won't be able to make fluffy earrings.
That would be terrible. I love my fluffy earrings, and I haven't made them in all the colors I want. I have to have a pair to match every outfit.
