I have no idea what the fun fur is. I always save my labels, but they get lost. I had a knitting box, then I added a knitting bin, then a big tote, then a smaller tote...I don't know where anything is anymore Sad I originally bought it to make a Cookiemonster stole but I got bored. Yeah, I was impressed with how well the colors turned out. I admit that I photoshopped it a bit, but only to make the colors more like they really are. The sad thing is you can't see it in action. The blue is kinda squished down on it (usually you'd see a lot more orange), usually it stands up and when the wind catches it, it changes from blue to orange with the whipping of the hairs.

I bought some Fun Fur in Sapphire to make a scarf for a friend.  It looks like the blue yarn you used for your scarf.  Here's a link to their site:

Aw, a Cookie Monster scarf would have rocked!  Okay, you've got to install the driver for your camera.  You've piqued my interest and I wanna see the entire scarf (not just a swatch!)...pretty please  Smiley

Oh yeah, that looks like my yarn! Eyelash yarns vary so much, but those look the right kind of hairy!

Yay!  I have the same yarn in my stash.  Like yourself, I have a yarn bin.  Okay...it's more like one of those plastic drawers on wheels thingie...and one of the drawers is filled with Target yarn  Tongue 

In my mind, your blue and orange scarf looks like a furry caterpillar.  I'm thinking it might be pretty cool to combine a green fun fur yarn with the orange furry yarn from target.  Perhaps knit a long tube/sock using circular needles and form that into a caterpillar stuffie.  Too outrageous, or totally doable?

I bought a bunch of the reall soft, light brown colour to use as fringe on a blanket. I'll have some extra, and was thinking of making something for my husband. No idea what, though; he doesn't wear scarves, hats, gloves, or sweaters.

Hmmm.  I know it's been done countless of times...but how about an ipod cozy?  There are quite a few knitted ipod cozy projects listed in this forum.  Here's one that I thought was simply divine:

Which kind of yarns did you manage to purchase?  Well, I went to Target last night for some H & B supplies and decided to check out the dollar section.  When I was there the last time, they were really low on the knitting supplies.  Surprisingly, they re-stocked the shelves!  Uh-huh.  Shelves brimming with knitting goodness!  They had all 4 kinds of yarns, needles, and books too.  Perhaps you could ask the sales associates if they plan to re-stock, or they might even have some in their storeroom.  Ya just never know  Smiley
