The Barf Scarf

I have been morbidly curious about flounce-type novelty yarns.  I satisfied that curiosity when I bought a skein of Starbella from A.C. Moore on Saturday.  I then proceeded to knit what turned out to be what I think is an ugly scarf.  My husband said it looked like a pile vomit.  I think he’s right.  Hence, the Barf Scarf.
What is the general opinion of flounce yarns out there?  I have learned I don’t like them.  I had to try it.  I HAD to… of those fads that should’ve been left alone.  At least my curiosity has been sated. 
The colors aren’t too hideous, I will say that.  Still, the frilly frou-frou –ness of the scarf is just not me, so I will give it as a gift to someone who would like it.  I have no idea who that is yet, but I’ll figure it out.
The lesson learned:  With knitting, it’s always good to try something new.  It may work.  It may not.  And you may end up with an ugly scarf, but, eh, at least I learned something.

  1. My LYS owner has been selling yarn like this and EVERYONE wants it! She's almost sold out of her very large stock. I think the scarves look good and unique, and a non-knitter would love it, but as a knitter, I find it cheap and not very amazing given how easy they really are to make.
