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.

My computer Rick and I are still together, just in case you were wondering.

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

An eye for and eye leaves the whole world blind.

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!
