I think the pointy scarf/hat thing is probably a long toboggan hat (the classic really long hats that taper to a point) that was long enough to also be used as a scarf.  So, it was a hat and scarf combo.

Oh. Well, that certainly makes a lot more sense than what I was picturing. That is, I wasn't really picturing anything that currently exists outside of my head, as far as I can tell...
Hmmm. I wonder if Nosey Dude remembers how he made it...it actually sounds kinda neat.

I know I've seen "patterns" out there, but mostly they are just something along the lines of use a circular needle to knit for X inches, decrease, knit for Y inches, decrease, and so forth.  The alternative is to start at the point (with double-points or 2 circulars), knit for A inches, increase, knit for B inches, increase, and so forth.

I call myself a granny 'cos I knit even though I am no where near being a granny. My friends call me granny too, but it is all in good fun. Everyone who has seen me knit thinks that it is cool, and they want me to make them something. Some people have asked me to teach them how to knit. Smiley

Well, he's got a big enough gut.  I'd figured it was just a classic beer belly, but modern technology being what it is...you never know!

I'm late finding this topic, but I wanted to comment on knittinknut's original post. This part:

Quote
I was in an art class a week or two ago and I brought up that I thought it would be cool if we knitted in the class.  A girl replied to my idea with negative comments and how she would drop the class if we started to knit.

A proffessor at my art college, Barb Hunt, actually does a whole mandatory knitting project in her intro sculpture class! The results are usually very awsome. ^_^ She gives them a theme to work with, as with other assignments. It's amazing to see what art students do with yarn when they approach the medium from an art perspective instead of a purely functional one. Barb is amazing... a great promoter of "craft" mediums in art. One of her own bodies of work is a series of knitted pink landmines! They are based on actual models of landmines too. She's very inspiring.

Yeah, I admit I've gotten what one might call the "granny stereotype" ("knitting? I would never have thought ANYONE knitted anymore!"), and I was a little nervous to bring my knitting to college to knit on breaks because of the reaction I might recieve.

Well, my classmates, namely the female ones, thought it was awesome that someone my age had taken up knitting. A few mentioned that their mothers/grandmothers had tried to teach them, but they thought it was silly and pointless to make ugly scarves and sack sweaters. I showed them a bunch of things I've knitted, most of them from Stitch and Bitch - the kerchief, wristwarmers, punk rock backpack(in progress.... I showed them the pic in the book), my iPod and cell phone cozies... now, a few have BOUGHT the book, taught themselves to knit, and are brandishing knitting needles with me on our breaks.

YAY!
