HI! I am a brand new knitter, trying to self-teach with videos on this site and on youtube. I'd like to make some scarves for my nieces using some Fun Fur and other fun (frilly) threads. I am finding, though, that there is less "elasticity" with these threads, so I'm wondering if I need to try different needles or something. Any advice/tips would be appreciated! Feel free to email me, too. THANKS!!!
