The Forever Scarf......................Why oh Why is it taking me so long?????
My Daughter Terry has been waiting and waiting for me to send her a scarf... I don't know what it is with me and scarves... I have so many of them on needles but I have such a hard time getting them finished... I do a little and then start knitting something else.. I can make a sweater or a blanket or a shawl in less time then it takes me to Finish a darn little scarf..
What is it??? Do I just have a thing against scarves???
I think its the fact that they go on and on forever in the same stitch and the same number of stitches that it just gets me so darn BORED !!! It practically gives me Anxiety just thinking of it while I am knitting.. LOL.. I would almost rather clean the house than have to kit a scarf from start to finish... Well... ALMOST!!!
I did this one with a feather & fan bottom and then started stockinette stitch because I liked the feel of the yarn in St . Stitch..
I did garter on the ends so that it would not roll. BUT Guess What??? yes.. It rolls right up and it bothers me to no end...
I will continue to torture myself and get this thing finished so Terry can be warm up in Buffalo But I will not enjoy doing it...
I'm going to do another FAST one for her but this time I will use bulky yarn and BIG needles... It will be a shorter Torture Time...
Soooo I guess if you want me to knit you something... Don't expect a scarf....

Even though it is driving you crazy, your scarf looks nice and comfy. You do such a great job 'playing' with designs on the hats, why not do the same with scarves? If you have to do one for someone.

I am still knitting my scarf for the scarf exchange. I have 2 more repeats and then the end edging. I should be knitting now instead of reading blogs! Shhhh. Don't tell my scarf pal that I'm reading blogs!

Hey Penny - just been catching up on your blog - so mmany gorgeous things, and Felix looks so settled in now - the all American little boy!

Agree with you about scarves - the only one I really enjoyed making was in Fisherman's Rib - now why, I wonder?
