All Kinds of Fiber Pr0n

Grandmamom, don't read this! You might not like it!













Oh, won't you play with my.....



dong-a-long . It's all Penny Karma's fault. It's crocheted with my very own Robincat handspun (85% mohair, 15% tussah silk). Yes, I am aware that it has enormous balls. My mistake for picking up a size H crochet hook instead of a D hook for the DK weight yarn. Due to the loose construction, I stuffed it with waste cotton fabric, so it's a little, uh... lumpy. But it's done and soon to be out of my house, which makes Mr. Robincat oh so happy. He's become quite unnerved by "the crocheting of the dong." I've threatened to make another, put jingle bells in the balls, and send it to his brother's fresh baby boy, but he vetoed that idea.



Now onto the roving pr0n. In the bottom left corner is Dorset/Columbia blend from Paradise Fibers that I dyed all by myself. In the top left corner is superwash merino in the Greek Isles colorway from Pigeonroof Studios. In the top right corner is even more superwash merino from Pigeonroof, but this time, in the Drift colorway. In the bottom right corner is Shetland (yum!) in the Harvest colorway from The Fiber Denn.

Wuhahahaha! Darth Vader weiner! Does that mean the force is strong with that dong? (I don't know my Star Wars enough to make an intelligent comment there).
