KNITTING THAT SCARF

Most of us quilters dabble in other things crafty from time to time.  Right now knitting that scarf is all the rage.  You must know the one I am talking about.  This one.  The ruffly one.


Warning!  It is very addicting.  This is my 5th one.  And, I have more yarn.  I will say it is good TV activity and it can be finished in an evening.


This "ruffling" yarn can be found in a lot of places.  Most of it I have found at Michael's.  The one hanging on the right is from a local yarn show.  The grey in the first picture, I found at Hobby Lobby.  Are you making "That Scarf" yet? 

Quilt or knit happy,
Marilyn

they are addictive- I have knit about a dozen of them and will do more as I want to give them away as Christmas gifts.
I have ordered some yarn from Herschners and the price has been very reasonable even with shipping- much less than the fancy yarn store here. I haven't had much luck finding it locally but Herrschners was a great source.
Happy knitting,
Regards from Western Canada,
Anna

Those scarves are the latest rage here too. I bought some of that yarn 2 years ago at a craft show, but I haven't made it into a scarf yet. I have no idea where I put it. Right now I am knitting some dishcloths, but will try to find that yarn today. It looked like fun when I saw it demonstrated.

Yep, I've made one and have 4 other skeins that I plan to knit up in the future. My friend made me my first one and I've been hooked ever since!
