I made myself a bicolor brioche scarf last fall. I vaguely remember it taking forever and vowing never to do one again. However, I wear the scarf every day and LOVE it, so somehow I decided to make one for DH.
I am just about to poke my eyes out with the needles, it is sooo boring. It seems like it will never end. I started about a month ago, I work on it at least 5 days a week for about an hour each day and it is only 40". I knit very quickly and believe me I have the pattern down, but it is sportweight yarn and it just doesn't GROW. I am seriously regretting how many sts I cast on. Shoulda made it 3" wide, lol. Then I might be closer to being done.
I wish I had incorporated some increases and decreases or something, anything. At least the yarn is nice, a merino/alpaca blend...though I also feel bad because the one I did for myself was 100% alpaca and is much softer. Sorry DH!
'Tis done, hooray!
