    where do i find good yarn to make a scarf with?

    I'm hoping to make a few scarves for friends for Christmas this year. I bought a pair of knitting needles last year (they're 12mm, i believe), but the yarn i bought to use to make the scarf out of wasn't thick enough. The scarf ended up looking really messy because the yarn was too thin for the size of the needles.

    Every time i go on a hunt for thick yarn, i can never find thick yarn that's soft.

    Anyone have any suggestions for soft, thick (maybe even uneven chunky-esque) yarn that's not too pricy?

    try a craft store like Michaels or Jo-Ann. they have lots of bulky yarns. there's a bulky version of Wool-Ease, and Lion also makes a bulky polar-fleecy yarn.
