Glad to hear the knitting bug has bitten you!
The scarves sound fabulous, and they are all the rage now, so you will be at the height of fashion too. Pictures please!
If you have some leftover, the eyelash yarn is a fun way to dress up the neck and cuffs of sweaters as well. This is especially true with kids' sweaters, and I've seen it done with a little girl's cardigan. It was absolutely beautiful, and really brightened up what would have otherwise been a rather plain sweater.
