Yikes

A forum I’m on held a craft kit thingy, where we were challenged to take items from a kit and turn them into something. The kit was kind of geared towards papercrafters, which I’m not, so I decided to do something with fiber. Meet FestOoned!

This gaudy monstrosity started out as some Corriedale wool top, which I spun with fabric bits from the kit into a bulky art yarn. I knit it into a tube to fit around a glass vase I had, and fastened more kit bits to it. There were fabric flowers in the kit, so I turned them into… flowers!

This was a swap, so I foisted it off on someone else, and in return, someone sent me theirs. I got crabs! Aren’t they cute?
