Fun fur is not so bad to crochet with, I remember helping my sister make hair ties and flip flops one fall for her craft booth, but knitting it is a pain in the you-know-where.

Still, you did it justice love. It looks great on you. And I have to say, that while your daughter may not appreciate the time spent on hand made items, at least your grandchildren got it right.

I remember how much I HATED knitting with the bloody stuff! Really, it's evil, evil yarn. I didn't know there was such a thing, but now I know it's true.
I do believe that's true! Wanted to make a poncho for Kate with it, but decided quickly to move on to something else.

However, those of you who do like it make wonderful things, so enjoy it for the rest of us.

Thanks for the picture and the stories. I know it must tickle you pink that your DGS and DGD appreciated your work so much. What a way to go straight to Grandma's heart.
