I have a confession to make... I hate making scarves. It's true, the rows are fairly short, but I just can't stand knitting the same thing over and over (and over) again.
As lovely as Going My Way turned out, I was pretty sick of it near the end. But at least it had some increases and decreases to keep it slightly interesting...
This one... this one is killing me. Garter stitch and 2.75 mm needles... it's definitely a slog.
But, even though I said it's not really a Christmas present, I am really trying to get it done in time for Christmas. I just bought Dave a new leather coat, and this really would be perfect to pair with it.
So... I've told the household chores to take a hike and every spare minute I have this weekend is devoted to getting it knit. (because then I still have to weave in all those vertical threads.)
We'll see how far I can get, because it's hard to say how much knitting time I'll get during the week as I still have to work
