I started this dropstitch scarf this afternoon simply because....well, I could. Here's a pic of a swatch:



I started knitting it in Paton's 'Divine'. Now it's starting to look almost too fuzzy. What do you think? Would you wear a scarf like that? I'm planning on knitting it quite long & to add fringe at the end... I'm just afraid the fuzzy's will make it too messy looking!  Undecided Or is it just me & my issues? All input is appreciated!

i've got 2 dropstitch scarves (non-fuzzy) and my mum has cottoned on and is obsessed. she's made five, all kinds of fuzzy-ness and silly novelty yarn, because that's the way she swings.

i think it's cool. it won't look messy by the time you have a scarfful of dropstitch.

From the subject line I was thinking "no, probably not" (i was picturing "fun" "fur" or something) but then I saw the pic and I thought "YEAH!" 

it's really pretty.  I say go for it.  I don't think the fuzziness takes away from it, I think it makes it look really soft and it looks very wearable.

Gives me an idea of what to do with the Patons Divine I got on a ridiculous sale (cheap yarn.  must buy) and haven't had any ideas for.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

I like the look of it.  And if I were wearing a scarf that didn't need to go over my face, then yea, I'd wear it!
A brief aside however, my first laceknitting attempt was a scarf out of a very fuzzy acrylic yarn.  Red heart Symphony perhaps? (i don't recall exactly) I loved the way it looked.  It felt so soft, it was great against my face, then I went outside and had to breathe.  It was horrible bitter cold, and I HAD to have it wrapped around my face . . .. and droplets of moisture formed in all the fuzz.  Ick.  So, no more fuzzy scarves for me sadly Sad

Thank you muchly everyone for your input! I love being able to check with Crafster when I'm doubting myself!!!

I think I'll find a warmer winter home for it -since it's bitter cold, here too.

I'd say I'm about half done right now. I will have to put it away this week as the family is arriving for our vow renewals & I hope to knit a poncho for my 8 month old niece while she's here!  Grin I will post a picture when she's all finished!
