I'm not really a fun fur or eyelash yarn type girl, but a friend of mine was cleaning out her stash and gave me stuff that she wouldn't use, and well, I can't say no to free yarn, any type of free yarn. However, with what she gave me today combined with stuff I have had for awhile I now have like 8-10 balls of eyelash in a variety of colours. I have light blue, dark blue, white, yellow-purple-orange striped, pink, and some yarn bee varigated type blue and yellowish stuff and possibly a few more balls buried left to dig out of my stash. I have no idea what to do with it all. I do novelty scarves but I wouldn't wear one that was mostly fun fur. Any ideas?

Maybe combine it with regular worsted and crochet with the doubled yarn?

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

You could make fuzzy slippers.

you can crochet 'trim' to attach to clothing... for example, attach a small band to the bottom hem of a skirt (adorable on a toddler!) or to the bottom edge of a sleeve or around the neckline of a shirt... I saw it on Carol Duval a few years ago and did an outfit for my then 1 1/2 yr old.

I usually take furry novelty yarn and use it double or triple with my working yarn on the front and sides of "bonnet" style hats, or for mitten cuffs.  I'll see if I can get a picture up in here when I get home.

If you're anything like me, those trims and stuff are what I refer to as "mom style." Meaning, I wouldn't touch them with a 10ft pole. haha

Since it's not really practical for wear, you might try making toys out of it. Bunnies, gerbils, etc. There are tons of free Amigurumi patterns out there for that stuff. Or you could always do the slipper idea, which I love. Or make something more whimsical like a lamp cozy or a shade.

I've thought about toys...I figured that was my best bet. I was just hoping that someone had some really great pattern for all this odd stuff...I might try slippers too. Hmm, now I'm going looking for patterns. Thanks!
