FO: scarves for teachers
I finished these scarves for some of my kids' teachers. I used Paton's Pooch yarn. Sz 17 needles and the blue/brown one I did 10 stitches. I used 3 skeins and it measured approx 6 inches wide and 5'3" long. The blue/green I did 7 stiches so it was slightly thinner and longer although I used 2 skeins. I forgot to measure it and already gave it. But these are the scarves I gave everyone for Christmas. I did 7 stitches and used 1 1/2 skeins each and it made a shorter, more decorative type scarf. It comes in lots of colors.

Pretty colours. Good idea with only 7 stitches bet they work up really quick.

Those are really nice! I've never seen that Paton's yarn before, is it easy to knit with?

The yarn was easy to knit with and with the large needles it was a quick project but the yarn makes it look fancier than it is.
