eylash yarn ... what to do with it?
i bought about 150g of black eyelash yarn and 100g of red eyelash which has a slight sparkle to it. I intended to make a fluffy black scarf with 4 inches or so of fluffy red at either end.
and thats what i started knitting. but i just dont like it.

what else can i do with black and red eylash yarn, that doesnt look tacky?

My Mom got me eyelash yarn! I posted a thread at the same time as you. I'm at a loss as to what to do with it as well. I hope these guys can come up with something for us!

Add a couple rows of trim around a purse. An entire purse or clutch. A few rows at the top of a sock. A long, narrow scarf, sort of like a feather boa. Trim a pair of flip flops by wraping it around the straps.

The one good thing about it is it hides any mistakes you make.

It is pretty weird stuff. I have to confess I, too, have way too much of it in my stash.

This is what I suggested to PSQUIDY -

I took a sweater that a friend of mine loved and wanted it to be spruced up a bit. I ran a border around the sleeves, neck and button band - it looked really cute. You mat want to consider buying her a plain cardigan or pullover with a deep neckline - and adding a "fancy" border." Not a scarf - but it will be frilly!

Hair falls! My favourite things to do with novelty yarn ;-) Either just use the threads on their own or make i-cords with them, then tie them round a hair bobble and put into hair, and you miraculously have cool goth hair or funky punky hair ;-)

how about using it to knit the border of a hood for the winter? I did it last year. I designed my own pattern for the hood with ties to keep it on place around my neck and then knitted 5 or 6 rows with eyelash for the border... it came out as those furry hoods often attached to heavy coats!

thanks for all the ideas guys. im not sure if im a fluffy trim sort of person, although adding a trip to my hood would be nice for winter!!
i thought that a nice pair of slipper socks would be nice too.

but my f avourite idea so far is the hair falls -- very funky

I kinda agree with everyone else, trimming something is way better than trying to make a full something (if that makes sense)
