Wreath?

A couple of weeks ago I decided the shop needed a wreath. I had an idea to make one out of fun fur. But then the thought o knitting with fun fur…. well. Most of you probably understand that feeling.

So I thought of a scarf that my sweet Aunt made me. It’s a prefectly green fun fur scarf. Well, it just had to become a wreath. I took a hay wreath (a styrofoam one would be jsut as good) and I pinned and stretched the scarf all around the wreath. Then I tied a bow over the spot where the scarf met ends.

Cute no? I have a desire to make more. So I’m going to take a couple of commercially knit scarves and make another for my home.

I actually have knitting done too:

I’m 2 inches away from starting the arm holes. Hopefully I’ll have this done soon. Though I’m itching to get some spinning done so I might end up setting this aside for a few days so I can get a pound or so of fiber spun up.

Have a great weekend – stay warm.

    That is pure genius. Using fun fur to make a wreath is unbelievably clever. I saw the picture but didn’t even THINK fun fur until I read the post!! I’ll remember that for next year, that’s for sure.

    There is a battle going on in my brain between the cool wreath and the idea of knitting with fun fur.

    I love it What a great use of the scarf I done mind knitting as long as the rows are short Should I be knitting another? What are you planing to do with the hat?

    It looks so adorable and fiber-y. Could you just wrap the yarn around a form to make another one? (Like fly-tying or floral stem wrapping.)

    I can’t think of anything more perfect for a fiber shop. You really are a genius and inspiration, Amy!

    That is so cute. I want to go find some fun fur scarves to make some, because I don’t really want to knit with the stuff, either, but as cute as that is I just might. lol
