I've started making lotsa stuff for the upcoming holidays. One really easy, cheap item I've made is this fuzzy, boa scarf:

It's not a great pic, but it's basically a very long, ultra-fuzzy scarf. The great thing is that it's so inexpensive and quick (took me about 2 one-hour sittings) to make.
Here's what I used:
yarn: Splash brand ($10)
needles: #17
Here's how I made it:
I casted on 10 stitches and just did garter stitch (knit every row) until I got to the length I wanted. It's a little tough to get used to the gigantic needles and the weird yarn, but it's so fast! I even had quite a bit of leftover that I think I'm going to use as cuff yarn for some mittens.
For you Boston-types: I got the yarn at Woolcott in Harvard Square. They used to have a more expensive yarn similar to this, but check out the stock towards the back of the store.

AK,
I think the yarn's so scary that you might not be able to see any other stitches! You can barely tell that it's knit--it's really crazy!

Wow!  That's so glamourous looking, no one would believe it's a $10 project!  That is such a great gift.

I've been in love with Lion Brand Fun Fur lately -- it's a little weird to work with but if you one strand of it with a strand of normal yarn (like a worsted weight) it comes out really fun.

I used some of that fun fur yarn on a pair of felted clogs I knitted up. I was afraid that the yarn wouldn't react well to being paired up with a wool and then felted, but they look great!

Lots of boston peeps on here I've noticed. I made a scarf much like this from Splash I found in the bargain bin at woolcotts, mine is lime green and teal, and is going to one of my newly acquired younger cousins Smiley
