FO: Fun Fur Scarf

I've had a nice relaxing yet productive day. I did laundry, worked on my, and finished two projects, including this Fun Fur scarf that I finished knitting while I was reading a book. Poncho Pig has graciously offered to model the scarf for us.

This scarf was knit using two skeins of Lion Brand Fun Fur Stripes in "Mexicana" and US size 9 plastic needles. It's basic garter stitch. I forgot exactly how many stitches I cast on. I think it is a little wider than I normally make these type of scarves, about 17 or 18 inches.

This scarf was a request from a friend at my church. She had bought several skeins of yarn on sale, and asked me to knit scarves out of them. This is the first of those scarves. It's about 45 inches long (I think) which was her request. I think it's a good length. These things tend to "grow," and I've made the mistake of making them way too long in the past.

I've mentioned before than I don't share the hatred for eyelash yarn many others have. I just think it has it's place, and there is nothing wrong with the occasional whimsical scarf. You can read more about my philosophy and theories on novelty yarn here.
