Fluffy Piggy

Project Knitaway
met to show off our May Challenge projects: Trash = Treasure. So the idea is to pass on your crap yarn, I mean, yarn you no longer feel a connection to, and someone else will make something with it.

And who was I sitting next to at the exchange? My pal over here. And she gave me eyelash yarn. I am not a fan of eyelash yarn. At all.

But somehow I love my Fluffy Piggy.

There is no pattern - I had made Kate before so I followed that structure, but not the exact pattern. My increases and decreases are all over the place, and I switched needles to accomomodate the yarn without the eyelash. Obviously the ears, arms and tail are different as well. She was a fun little knit. I can't tell if she had a bad perm, is playing dress up with a bad tu-tu, or is a cross between a pig and a Pomeranian.

Which just goes to show you that eyelash is not ugly unless you wear it. Such a sweet piggy!

I am so glad that became part of a pig, instead of a sweater or something. Cute!

That pig is just darling. It's things like that that give me a childlike wonder when it comes to knitting.

So cute! Just when I think "No, I don't need pink eyelash yarn," I see this... and now I'm thinking, "Hmm, maybe I *do* need pink eyelash yarn." :)
