hmmm....  looks like a good way to keep up w/ my knitting habit!  christmas presents for next year and something to do on the bus.  I've always steered very wide of all straight acrylic (except for a few times when I mixed it with another strand of a nicer, nobby yarn to take away from the ickyness), but those scarfs came out nicely.  and I can make a scarf for $4.50!  woohoo!

edit:  how many stiches did you cast on for the second scarf?  I just happen to have 15 size needles (well, cheap-o college student I am, they're dowel rods), but I always have a hard time judging wideness.

If I ever get up enough wool I think I'll make a blanket like that. But maybe I'll do a scarf first. Great job!

divasteph:  now that I think of it, both of those girls look really like my boyfriend's sister...  but as I have no pictures of her, I can't post them.

but it's really kinda scary...

And they are beautiful pics.  They look like they are out of a knitting book!  Nice job.

*blushes*

thanks.  i took them on your standard 35mm manual-focus camera because i like being able to zoom in on the detail of the stitches and also i like using natural light.  the last one of my friend kate was taken on someone else's disposable camera, which is why it's not all that great.  

i'm thinking of being a real knitting knerd and starting a scrapbook of all the stuff i've made and given to people.  i'm such a dork...

Red Heart has a new "plush" yarn that is really fun.  It still isn't terribly expensive, and I bet it would look fabulous in this application!

i think you are speaking of the light and lofty yarn. that stuff is awesome. i made scarves and matching hats with it. it was really quick to make cuz it was done on such big needles.

I did something similar but wanted more texture - so I'm using a boucle, a lace weight wool, a cotton fleece and a 80 % wool/ 20% acrylic blend and knitting it all up on size 8.5mm. I'm really pleased with the colorway and how the stitches look.

i really like the eye lash yarns, but they stretch out so much! so i use one strand of that and then one of worsted weight yarn in the same color. or, sometimes i'll use a different color to have a little of the worsted weight yarn peek through.

Nope, I mean Plush.  See it here:

http://www.coatsandclark.com/find_a_product/knitting_crochet/E719/html/e719.htm

I think it's pretty new.  I used it to fringe a polar fleece blanket for Christmas.  It unravels pretty easy at the ends, but it's easy to work with.  It's not a real heavy weight yarn, not much heavier than their regular ol' acrylic.  I highly recommend it for cozy scarves!!
