I live in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia I am mainly a crocheter but last year started knitting again with Fun Fur . It can't be crocheted as Cro flattens the long fibers. I started using circular needles - knitting straight, as they are less tiring. I wanted to make a Beret and don't have the expertise for the circ pattern required, so I crocheted the increases with 2 strands of 8 ply till I had enough shaping, then picked up the stitches on my 12.75 circs, adding in a strand of fur, using garter St. when I was ready to do the band I crocheted the sts off the needles and finished in Cro, I was delighted with the finished article. I have never tried anything like this before.. and found it quite exciting. I make, Beanies, Scarves and washers for Brisbane Homeless. I also make Jewellery, mainly strung beads for my friends and myself. I also love my computer - but dial-up can be a trial.
