I got so discouraged with very annoying variegated yarn that I was using to knit scarves for StreetKnit that I kind of gave up on the charity knitting for a bit. I felt bad and did a handful of scarves right away. I failed my 60 scarves in 60 days challenge, but I'm hoping to make plenty for StreetKnit's Enchanted Forest at City of Craft 2009

Pattern: Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks
Yarn: Red Heart...something, not sure.
Needle size: 6mm
I actually really enjoyed this pattern, after doing the first couple of rows I initially wanted to rip my hair out because I hate purling more than two stitches together at once. But once I got into it, it was enjoyable and just flew right by in a matter of hours. Don't really mind the pooling, but it isn't my favourite.

Pattern: None, just garter stitch.
Yarn: Bernat Soft Boucle
Needle Size: 10mm

Pattern: None, garter + switching yarns every other row.
Yarn: Bernat Soft Boucle
Needle Size: 6mm
This seemed to take forever, I have no idea why. Maybe it was the garter, maybe it was the tiny stripes, but this just did not want to get done!

Pattern: none, 2 rows single crochet (black), 1 row single crochet (variegated)
Yarn: Red Heart Comfort Prints
Hook Size: 5mm
This was the yarn that drove me mad and made me not want to work on scarves anymore. It's sort of an obnoxious yarn when it's not broken up and is sooo overpowering it really doesn't matter what pattern you make, it'll all end up like clown puke. I don't think it looks too horrible when it's all split up and mixed in with the black a little. This one was super long, it's done lengthwise and I just kept chaining and chaining until I realized how long it was. And because I'm stubborn, I couldn't rip back, not after I put all that time into it anyway.
