I just started knitting about 2 months ago and am bored making wash cloths and coozies - and am trying to knit a scarf using trendsetter yarns - delicious - my question is how do i know where I am at - b/c it is bulky than normal yarn? Help

Fuzzy, novelty yarns are difficult to work with on one hand, but on the other hand, it's hard to see errors. My only suggestion is to use large needles and really pay attention to each stitch.

I am using a Size 10 needle - is that too small?

I'd use an 11 or 13. Larger needles make it go faster too.
