The Cushion Formerly Known As Puff Daddy

Everyone in the world needs a puff! It's the perfect thing for resting your feet on after a long hard days work while reading a book. Or for little kids to sit on when watching tv. And the best thing is it knits up super fast!!!

Mustard Puff

Yarn: Cleckheaton Country Wide in Sunshine
Time Taken: 2 days
Actual Knitting Time: approx 4 hours including assembly.

I found this pattern last week on Ravelry and instantly knew I wanted to make one. All I needed were some big fat needles and some big fat wool. Thus the epic search began. So I went to Spotlight and searched and searched but all I could find was fat wool in the wrong colour and skinny wool in the right colour. I walked up and down those aisles for half an hour hoping to find something and nothing. So I went home and searched the internet. All the shops I found had the perfect coloured wool in the perfect ply but were so expensive Corey would have shot me if I purchased them. One was going to cost me $200 to buy enough wool to make one puff. Outrageous!!!

Then I had the bright idea to search ebay and my prayers were answered. In a little ebay shop called yarn-4-u I found the perfect yarn at the perfect price. Now this is not a paid advertisement but I feel it is my duty to share with you how good this shop is. I found the wool Monday and had it by Wednesday. This seller is super efficient and answers all questions promptly so if you are considering purchasing wool on ebay I would check this shop out.

Now I'm off to pop my feet up and have a cup of tea before work. Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!!!
