Cast on for the first time this year. My daughter gave me four skeins of Red Heart Pomp-A-Doodle yarn in different colors, I already had one skein that I had purchased. So when I purchased my skein I could not figure out how to get started and was about to lose hope when the thought came to me to go to YouTube, found a video on how to knit with Pomp-A-Doodle. I watched the video over and over again, but I did not start a scarf because I had a big dishcloth project going. Well tonight I watched the video and cast on using a skein that my daughter gave me for Christmas. It took several attempts but I think I have figured it out and have added a few rows. I am using the Red Velvet, so far so good. The pattern for the scarf was on the back of the band. You cast on twelve so the scarf is not very wide, the picture on the band looks a lot wider than my scarf. It does not matter I think the scarf will turn out great. I am trying to decided if I will keep the scarf or give it to my co-worker she wears a lot of scarves to work. The video was a lot of help. It took a few viewing before things came together. Still reading A Holiday Yarn.
