I've totally failed...

I don't think I'm going to get all 60 scarves done in 60 days. I blame variegated yarns. Somedays I'll knit and frog the same yarn all day, and sometimes this will go on for multiple days. I'll try knitting, I'll try crocheting, nothing works for some yarns. And everything needs to be visually appealing, it doesn't matter if I'll probably never see it again, I can't give something to a charity and have it look like clown puke, I just can't.
So, I got a little discouraged. And I've decided that when variegated yarns are pissing me off, I'm just going to dive into my oddball stash and made some stripey goodness.
I've managed to make 5 scarves this month, I'm horribly disappointed in myself, and I'm going to try to get 5 more done by the end of the month. But we'll see.
The latest:

Pattern: No pattern, just grabbed a stitch pattern from a stitch dictionary. It's called "Slipstream"
Yarn: I think this was Vanna's Choice, but I can't be sure. Oddball stash yarn.
Hook size: 5mm
Everytime I crochet, I remember how much I love it. And then I remember how much I hated it before I knew how, and how I avoided it at all costs. Silly me.
