I just started knitting to entertain myself over Christmas break. I'm knitting a couple of scarves for people, and I chose a yarn for my mom that seemed ordinary enough. It's Lion Brand Color Waves, but I'm still having trouble knitting with it. It's going much more slowly than with worsted weight yarn, and the stitches don't feel right/it's hard to tell what I'm doing with all the fluffiness in the way. Any tips?? Smiley

Look for the recent threads on Lion Brand's think & quick chenille or Fun Fur for pointers.  Novelty yarns are a unique challenge.

You know, my tips are to stick with it, assume you're right, and know that unless you make any really glaring mistakes (and I can't even really think of anything that would be that glaring), it shouldn't show too much in that yarn. Either way, if it's for your mom, I'm sure she'll love it no matter what!

Boucle is a difficult yarn to work with, I think, but using a textured, variegated colored yarn really does help cover up mistakes. Just keep going and don't question yourself too much!
