THANK YOU, you wonderful craftster darlings! So far I can only "knifty knit" but when I have my fill of knifty scarves I am definitely learning to knit properly, so I am already reading lots of knitting posts. This is sooooo helpful!! Much newbie love to all of you!!!
I wonder if you could work with it in one of those little "knitting nancy" things...like a spool with 4 little pegs on one end, like a tiny knifty knitter? It might be easier to control. It would produce a "rope" you could then create something else with. Hmmm.... I do think it's a little gross, but then again I briefly considered sending my dog's hair to one of those places that spin pet hair (he sheds...ALOT...so I figured, why not make it functional?) until my friends looked at me in horror and I realized I may have crossed into "crazy pet lady" territory.
