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!
