Flounce Scarf

This is the start of a flounce scarf for the 16 year old. At first I really found this "yarn" to be extremely fiddly and did not enjoy it at all, but now it is growing on me. I love the outcome - it does really make a statement and after awhile you do get used to knitting with it.
I used this link from youtube to cast on and see how to actually knit. I found it very helpful.
The "yarn" really is fun to look at as it curls and ruffles up all on it's own :o)

Take a look at all the other WIPs in progress from Tami's blog - some of them are quite inspiring!

It's turning out beautifully. Is it a ribbon "yarn"?

The yarn is stunning but it does look like it would be challenging to use.

I love those scarves, but just can't imagine knitting it. I did watch a video and it doesn't look too hard, but I don't think I am brave enough! LOL. Love the color!!!

Cute. I think the teenager will love it, especially in those fresh celery greens!

Wow, I love that! I have just donated two balls of that, because I just didn't ever see myself getting around to it. Now I wish I had kept it!
