Alright, here's the story:
I leave for college in August.
As in moving.  As in limited space.
I have an underbed tote thing that I want to get all of my yarn to fit in by then.
I'm well on my way.
I got all of my yarn to fit in it without smooshing it or space bags or any of that crap.
Except the fun fur/other novelty garbage.
There's about a craft tote full (roughly 20 balls of the stuff).

The problem I'm presented with is this:
I can't throw it out - That's blasphemy.
I can't make anything I can think of with it - I only have 1 ball of each kind.

WHAT DO I DO WITH IT?!

you could hold a few strand together and make a funny coloured monster bag large enough to carry your books:

I'd make it a little differently though, especially since you'll be knitting: I'd make the main body as a rectangle that'll fold over for the flap, and then make the sides/strap and attach.

Ooh! or you could get some circs and make the body in the round, then bind off most of it and keep knitting back and forth for the flap. then make the bottom and straps. you probably have a little more control over the size that way.

Hmm...fun fur is so forgiving that I could probably just seam up the bottom and knit it in one piece...
Yknow, throw the strap stitches on holders and save them for later while I work on the flap....
That's a fantastic idea!
Thank you!

Fun fur makes great lei's!!! They use the stuff all the time in Hawaii. You might google fun fur lei's or something so you can see them... some of them are really beautiful!! No lie!

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

There's alway donations to charity knitters. Smiley  I'm not one, but I know of someone who will give you some sort of compensation in return for the yarn scraps (depending on amount of yarn--I was given 3 or 4 choices).

I know this might sound as blasphemous as throwing it out... but Goodwill??  As was mentioned, Ebay would work, too.  I just think Goodwill is fast and easy Smiley  I take all kinds of stuff there. 

On the other hand, if you can't part with it that way, it looks like some other people have good ideas!

Sorry, can't sell it.
That requires money I don't have for shipping >.<


I cast on the monster bag today.
Size 11 24" circs.  A bajillion stitches (or so it felt like.  It's triple stranded.)
I'm still not sure this thing is going to eat it all, so we'll see how much is left when I'm done.
