Hereís a scarf I finished a few days ago, it actually matches the felted earrings I made (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15017.0)



Itís really simple I know but donít you love making simple things out of nice fluffy yarn?

That's beautiful and looks wonderfully cozy! It looks really great on your teddy.

What brand of yarn is that? It looks really nice plus it is a great shade of orange.
Nice job!

Itís made with Patons Divine in Orangina, itís a bit hard to work with at first the fluff tends to wrap around and look like an extra stitch but itís so nice and warm when itís finished

Ooooh! I love the Paton's Divine yarns--I'm using the Deep Earth [or whatever it's called] on a shawl at the moment.  For a non-LYS yarn, it's really beautiful, and is certainly more in my price range.  I don't think I've seen that orange color at my local craft store, but I might have to order it, 'cause I just love your scarf [and your model is very handsome!].  I too found it a little tricky to work with at first, especially on smaller needles--I had the same problem you did with the fluffiness sort of camoflauging the stiches.  I switched from size 9 to size 13 needles, knitting rather loosely, and it's much easier to work with--plus the fluffiness gives it a sort of airy, gauzy feel.

I love your scarf! I have the same yarn in the orangina and floral fantasy but was wondering what size needles you used cause I can't seem to find a size that I like with this yarn.

I used size 13 needles when I used Divine to make a wrap--I think they were a good fit.

Black Lamb, are you allergic to this too?  I made one very similar (I swear, didn't hit this forum until I was like, finished mine!) and I've been wearing it and it makes me sneeze Sad  It's very tragic for me.
