I'm a newbie when it comes to hand knitting.  I've finished several loom-knit items, but I haven't been patient enough to just sit and practice knitting/purling to make anything more than practice squares let alone items I'd wear out of the house.  I bought some Loops and Threads pom pom yarn at Michaels on a whim, and I really, really enjoyed knitting with it.  The scarf is ridiculously plush, and it was a very quick knit.  I think just knitting the carrier yarn was actually easier to handle than regular worsted or bulky yarn as a newbie.

The Michaels site has an easy-to-follow video for both knitting and crocheting with the pom pom yarn (though I haven't figured out crocheting yet).  http://www.michaels.com/Bunny-Tail-Yarn-Video/LtBT1Vm2172u2,default,pg.html

This color of yarn is named Outdoors, and it's a really pretty combination of colors.  I'm just excited to actually finish a knitting project!  Grin

Looks great. I've never worked with pom pom yarn before because it looks difficult. Good on you for figuring it out.

I have seen that yarn and wondered if it would be hard to work with!
