I think that yarn would make a great Urchin from Knitty.com! Along with a garter scarf it'd look wonderful!

I bought some pooch last summer when it was $1.00 at Michael's too. I crocheted it around some flip flops and they turned out really cute. Here is a link to a website where she explains how she did it with fun fur - but you can do the same thing with pooch.

After I wore mine - all my friends wanted a pair and I wound up making about 10 more. They are fun and fast to make!

Pooch Yarn
Colleen, I would LOVE to buy this yarn from you if you still own it. I live in MO and will not only pay for the yarn, I'll pay all shipping costs.

The store had more of this yarn, so if I find some great suggestions soon, I might just have to go back and buy some more.

I haven't tried knitting with this type of yarn before. Any suggestions? Is it difficult to work with?

Thanks,
Colleen
