Here are two scarves that Carol describes as being what one gets a six year old to do when they want to learn to knit. You simply tie a thread of fluffy wool to a 2 metre ribbon, with the other end sticky taped to a short piece of dowel or even a pencil. Then just start wrapping the thread around and around the dowel, every now and again pulling it down the ribbon.
You end up with a lovely fluffy scarf in no time! I have already been wearing the bright one a lot, and haven't even got around to showing everyone in the group!!
