I like knitting scarves because there is no right side/ wrong side so all you do is knit (no perl). I like to combine yarns, like a thick one with a thin fuzzy one so they knit up fast, but have some character. For my wild child niece I'm going to knit 3 thin yarns together and then start switching one out for a different color, then switch another one out for a different color, etc. It's an idea I came up with but have no idea how it will actually turn out. I have a lot of leftover yarn that isn't enough for a whole scarf. I'll make hers first and if it turns out well I may do them all that way.
