The Never-Ending Candy Colored Scarf

This scarf has taken my nearly 4 months to complete. Granted, I haven't worked on it very often... but now that we're rounding the corner to spring, it's ready to wear. What's my excuse? I reeeally don't like to knit. I keep trying to like it, but I just don't enjoy it. Why don't I just stick to crocheting?

I used Lion's Brand Landscapes yarn in Rose Garden - two skeins. This is my own "pattern" of the stockinette stitch... 11 stitches wide.
- Row 1: k1, p1, repeat.
- Row 2: p1, k1, repeat.
- Repeat and repeat until you're sure you'll never be done with this blasted scarf.
- Repeat some more until you're sure that you never want to knit again.
- Finish off.
- Ignore the mistake stitches.
- Wrap around your neck and enjoy for 8 days until the weather will be too warm to wear it.

(P.S. The brown speckled Express sweater was thrifted for $1.00.)

I love to crochet! :) In fact, just thinking about learning to knit scares me. Crocheting is fast and just mindless for me, which I enjoy... I like to make scarves while watching TV, and I hate counting rows and stitches! :)

The colors in this scarf are gorgeous! Just the name "Rose Garden" appeals to me!

I tried to knit and I tried to knit and I have never finished a DARN thing.... I've tried to crochet and I've tried to crochet and I only finished one scarf!! End of story :O)

I love your instructions! Hehe! I have found I like to crochet more than knit as well.

Rose Garden looks like a beautiful yarn!

You'll be cozy next winter:-)

Lovely scarf Diane! I actually really enjoy knitting once I get started. It's the getting started part that I have trouble with.
