I started a fun fur afghan for myself last night. I bought 14 skeins of Lion Brand fun fur fun stripes at the $ store. I'm using 1 strand of the fun fur with 1 strand of a very thin acrylic I bought on Ebay. If I hadn't bought the fun fur at the $ store I wouldn't be making this afghan - fun fur is around $5.99 each skein at regular craft stores.
Here's an updated photo of my afghan - it is 33" square.
