Greetings fellow knitters!

A friend of mine recently asked if I could help knit her a scarf.  I agreed, of course, but I would like to know the best type of yarn to use to knit a long, long skinny scarf, with fringe (100" long, 3" wide)

My friend has tried her hand at knitting but claims she doesn't have the patience for it.  I'm hoping this scarf (made with yummy yummy REALLY SOFT yarn) will bring her interest back for knitting.

Any suggestions?

goodness! that's one long scarf--I hope she's paying you for your hard work and the yarn!
For something long and thin like that I think your best bet would be to use drop stitch. It looks best with one of the nicer novelty yarns--my favorite to use is Moda Dea's Eden (which has recently been on sale at Michael's for around $3 a ball, I think)
Good luck!

If you want something super soft and luxurious, try Malabrigo. It feels wonderful and comes in beautiful colors. It's rather expensive, but it definitely stands out.
