I did this scarf on a 29" Size 9 Circular needle
it was almost 300 Stitches, and I did 4 rows of each color
my 12yo Daughter LOVES it, and actively sabtages me every time I try to sell it

Three seven foot scarves!? **eek**
I don't do scarves because I get bored with them - I did three last Christmas and decided that four feet was long enough, as they all just do the fold in half method. Granted, the gift I took the most time with was the least appreciated (less even than the hat that didn't fit anyone and looked HORRIBLE, because that one made a great frisbee).

LMAO at `great frisbee` cuz that is sooo funny! I am sure that even if it looked unflattering it was probably warm and comfy.

Yes, I got suckered into three of them. My DD can never just ask for one small thing, she HAS to have it all! Bored or not bored, I have to go on as it is the only thing she wants for Christmas this year. I will do my best to get as far as I can with them.

Were it me, I'd give her coal for Christmas. Such an attitude doesn't deserve all the time and effort in my opinion.

The Saga of Scarf Hell continues...

OK now is when I NEED motivation. I have the blue scarf finished except weaving in the ends, the white scarf is sitting at 36" and the green scarf is sitting at 28" at this time.

I made an error in judgement on the white scarf. I chose size US 7 needles. It is taking forever to show any progress. The green scarf however, I CO yesterday morning and it is going quickly. I am using size US 10's and the Eve's Rib pattern. I still don't think I will be finished them all by Christmas, but I am trying hard.

Someone care to give me a boot in the butt and make me knit faster? PLEASE.......
