Lucy Knits! Again!

After her complex cat, Lucy (my 12 year old), took it easy with her knitting.  I was making infinity scarves, and she wanted in on the action.  She picked through my yarn and chose a bulky purple (Shetland Chunky, or Beehive Chunky, etc), and a long purple eyelash.  She was  supposed to do the two edge stitches in garter stitch, and then the rest in stockinette stitch.  However, sometimes she got distracted and did garter stitch, or flipped which was the knit side and which was the purl side.  It doesn't really show in the furry yarn, but it does create a bit of texture and interest.
The purple one is a single loop.  For a young child, you could probably loop it twice.  It weighs 58gr, and was in last year's totals.

That one was fun, so she picked out a charcoal yarn and a silvery grey eyelash.
 This one is cool!  It's like a kitty or dog with dark under fur and lighter long hairs.  This one weighed 78gr and was in last year's totals.

 It wraps twice, and is quite warm!  She's selling both these scarves, if you're interested.

For Christmas she got a ball of soft grey chunky yarn--thicker than the ones in these scarves, and a ball of Bernat Boa, an eyelash yarn.  She tried knitting them together, but the chunky yarn is so thick that the eyelash yarn barely stands out, and looks choppy, not plush.  I suggested trying a thin grey yarn.
