Going Faux

I’m not a newbie when it comes to knitting but it has been quite a while since I knitted something. One thing I am a newbie of is working with pelt yarn (faux fur). I saw a faux fur neck warmer I liked so I began on my quest to revisit an old hobby. I can thank my neighbor Mary Lou (now deceased) who lived on the 1st floor in the 5 floor walk-up I used to call my domicile. Without her showing me how to knit hands on, I probably would have never picked up on it. I do remember my desire was spurred by my becoming a mother. I’ve knitted only hats and scarves. I do amigurumi as well when it comes to needle crafts.

And so voila… It took me a few hours to knit the neck warmer but broken in two days since I did not order enough pelt yarn for my project so I ended up taking a trip to the craft store the next day to buy another skein. I used 3 skeins total.

Sadly, I live in a place that is almost Summer all year long and maybe, yes maybe, a coat worthy day or two. I will be praying for an extended period of cold weather especially since our AC is busted. I cannot wait to have this soft, fluffy and cushy bit of coziness wrapped around my neck.

I have applied filters on the picture for anonymity’s sake. The point is to provide visuals without my clear visage, my poor attempt at privacy. Lol.

“Behold, what I have seen to be good and fitting is to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all the toil with which one toils under the sun the few days of his life that God has given him, for this is his lot.”
