The plarn continues

In awesome ways! Look at this plarn! Given, the only thing it makes me think of is muppets, or pubes, or muppet pubes, as I posted about in another forum. Which kind of gives me the willies.

Oh, the things you can do with plarn. I think this yarn is another great example of the unlimited nature of alternative yarns. This yarn is most definitely art yarn, but can also be used to crochet with. It's amazingly funky, and it makes me look at the materials around me in a whole new way.

When I started spinning it I had no idea it would end up like this. I envisioned the onion bags (the orange mesh) to stay, well, mesh, and to lie neatly next to the plastic bag. Clearly it did not.

It's crazy and spiky and kind of reminds me of cacti. The orange mesh sticks up every which way, and is very tactile. Surprisingly, though, it's not painful! I can't stop touching it.

I am not sure what to DO with such an invention though. Any ideas? All I can think of is muppets, and that is not productive. I'm already amassing more onion bags, in the hopes of getting another skein of this spun up this weekend.

I'm thinking it would make good:
-Cat toys
-crazy bags

but that's all I've got. All suggestions are recommended! You know how I love crocheting with plarn.

There is some more info on my rav page, in the stash section as well!

I love it! Sadly I don't have any ideas to add to your list for what to do with it, but I love it!
