Anyone else knit with JoAnn Sensations Marvel Yarn?
I was given a hank of JoAnn Sensations Marvel Yarn in Multi. I don't usually buy JoAnn Sensations Yarn. - Not that I have anything against it, I just have never tried it. If you've never used the Marvel - it's a wool yarn that alternates thin yarn with chunky yarn (just the way it's spun). I am knitting up a skinny scarf in it for my 3 yr old. The colors are very childlike and because of the yarn consistency, it lends itself to a very whimsicle scarf.

Here's the question: I'd like to make fringe at the ends of the scarf. I've never made fringe before. Would this even work with the consistency of this yarn?

Thanks in advance!

With my infant knitting imagination when you asked about the fringe, I imagined your lovely yarn not hanging down well enough to show it's pretty texture, it might be too light with it's thinner parts. Could beads be put on the end? A little weight might extend the fringe enough to show it's pretty pattern. Or is your child old enough to have beads and not try to chew them off?
I don't know anything about the yarn itself. But it sounds lovely. Is it possible for you to post a picture of the finished article? I'd sure like to see it.
A stitch in time saves nine, but knitting saves the mind!
