Finally Some Knitting

 In attempt to accomplish something -- you can't do a whole lot in a neck brace -- I picked up this Zick Zack scarf that's been languishing for a few years.  I'm using left-over yarns from other projects, and it's been fun deciding when to change colors.

I love the way it is coming out, but I will not make another one. It's a one-row repeat that requires counting, so it is tedious. I think I'm almost done -- I'll have to try it on when I take off my neck brace to wash today -- and then I can move onto something new.

  1. Beautiful!

    How long do you have to stay in the brace? Hopefully, not too long.

  2. Lovely! I started one too and abandoned it because I found it a slog but I did think it was really pretty.

  3. That is simply lovely. I've been intrigued by this pattern, but I'm thankful you mentioned how tedious it is. I don't think I would deal very well with tedious just now. LOL

  6. I love the Zick-Zack scarf. I knit one myself about 5 years ago. It is an amazingly simple pattern . . . that is amazingly tedious to knit. Because all that counting. And all the ways one can forget to count. I hope your neck brace is doing its job and helping you heal as quickly as possible. XO

  8. I have made two of them and while they are gorgeous they are a lot of work. Hope your neck is feeling better, so sorry for all the mess the accident has caused.

  9. That's a pretty scarf and it's always fun to use up scraps.
