I'll be honest I'm a little scared to work with them. I can get frustrated easily, so I like to stick to more even yarns.
On the Red Heart site, there are patterns available........and one of the patterns is for a small blanket that is made with the Pomp-a-Doodle yarn. It is quite pretty (in pink), but after using this yarn for a trim on wristlets, I'm not sure I have the patience to make an entire blanket!!!!! It's different, all right!
I've had a play with the pomp-a-doodle (though I had to look it up to see what it was before I recognised it :-) )
I find it a bit fidly to crochet with in that I have to look at what I'm doing. I like how it ends up though kind of like a piece of material thats made up of little blobs of fluffiness :-)
I just made a coffee pot cosy that has some of that yarn in it (I've put it in my JacBerKitsch etsy shop...)
Sounds like you were NOT defeated by Pomp-a-Doodle!!!! I'm off to your shop to see the coffee pot cosy - and what about the avatar here, looks like the fingerless mitts may have a P-a-D cuff?
I shoulda known that Barbra Buttons, yarnster extraordinaire would have tried this "stuff".....ok, 'fess up, did you knit or crochet it? I did the fingerless mitts in a cocoa brown and this color as the fluffy wrist......knit.....definitely a challenge.....when Rachael, the 7 y/o grand-daughter spotted them across the room, her eyes lit up, she made a bee line for them and said, "oh, yeah, these are MINE!" She put them on, and I don't think they came off for the rest of the day.......it was one of those not-for-Kodak moments, just priceless!
No Cozy, I'll check later.......
it IS soft.....and dusty! I kept sneezing as I worked with it......................;-)
