If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

Friday FO: The Pom Pom Scarf

Finally a FO! Huzzah!

This is the Pom Pom Scarf I was working on. Very quick and easy knit. Looks like I really did something special here. But, you know, it was garter stitch, basically, using this Pom Pom yarn from Loops And Threads.

The yarn is a bit tricky to work with at first. You're only knitting the thread in between the pom poms. So it goes a little slower until you get used to it. But it leaves you with these pom poms shoulder to shoulder in a sea of pom poms! I used a skein and a half to get this 7 foot long scarf.

This scarf is very fluffy and light. And it looks playful. I wanted to make some matching mittens (pom poms on the cuffs and a matching wool on the hand), but M says she prefers her leather driving gloves.

So I will save the half skein of Pom Pom and do something else with it. Any ideas?
