Hometown Pride Pom Pom Scarf

 Thought I'd try two of the Pomp-a-Doodle colors together--this is Creston Panther colors, along with 2 skeins of Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour in Ruby Red & Onyx.

The 2 pom pom yarns were a bit difficult to knit together since they kept tangling up with each other, but it was a fairly quick knit.  These were on size 35 needles, 8 stitches per row.  The additional stitch in each row shortened the scarf by about a foot, so it's 7 inches wide by 36 inches long. 

If I were to make it again, I'd probably do 7 stitches, so that it's 4 feet long.  Not bad, though.  The pompoms have a good coefficient of friction (i.e, the short scarf is probably not going to blow off, but it may come loose if you lean over). looks better as a mobius scarf...

Whew, only one more assigned pomp-a-doodle, and then I can move on to another yarn....actually, it's not too bad to work with, and really is soft and warm.

Happy knitting & get some sleep!
