Ok, thanks for the info on the potato chip scarf - I googled and printed and I just started my 3rd one. I am far from an expert knitter, but I found them very easy to make. And while poking around the ravelry site where I found the pattern, I found a couple of other patterns in knit and crochet that I think I need to try.
This could turn out to be a repeat of the year I was knitting the fun fur scarves. I gave them to my mother, sisters-in-law, aunts, cousins -- they were kind of like zucchini squash. "Did she leave her car unlocked? Quick! Put a scarf in there!"
