That's a beautiful scarf and well worth the effort. I would agree that having another project on the go helps with the boring ones.

Thanks! I thought I'd never find a use for that old yarn, but it does make a cozy scarf.

I have to envy those who can knit while they watch tv - and I can imagine what I'd end up with - frog, frog, and more frog!

I keep hearing that term here. Is 'froging' ripping out the work, or giving up on one project and jumping to the next?

It's ripping out some of the work. But I think your interpretation makes WAY more sense - good one!

Rip it. Rip it. Rip it.

Thank you for the New Year's wishes. It's great to see a picture of the infamous Boring Scarf. I like the color, and the yarn shows off the stitch pattern nicely.

The knitted cast on has been a new favorite of mine, I cast on tightly though, and this one has some give for me. I like the long-tail cast on, it was what I learned when I first started knitting. It knits up into a nice firm edge, and I use a needle two or three sizes larger for the cast on.

What pattern are you using for the new project?

Your feelings about cast on methods is helpful for me, because I'm pretty sure I'm the opposite - casting on and knitting too loosely. So maybe increasing my tension will mean I can stay with my knitted co, which is so easy to do, and no worries about estimating yarn.

The next scarf - I'm basically using the pattern tabsheltie7 posted, which is a Bernat pattern intended for boa yarn, but I'll make it a bit bigger. I bought a bulky yarn, which I've never tried before, and big needles - 9mm - also a new experience. It's kind of a strange yarn, I think - so who knows what I'll end up with, haha, at least I won't be bored!

It looks just great! I know what you mean about boring work. Been there, done that. A scarf can really seem to go on and on forever, but you've persevered, and I'm proud of you!
