Well I cast on, I knitted a few rows and I got tired of it. I didn't like knitting it on straight needles and at the time the only circular needles I had were 40cm ones which were too short to be comfortable. The scarf and yarn when into a bag and got forgotten about.
Whilst knitting the MKAL cardigan I reached a point where I was ahead of the pattern clues and wanted something mindless to knit at the same time. I had originally planned on knitting my Paprika cardigan but I wanted a break from pink! Then I remembered the scarf and got it out.
My knitting speed has obviously increased over the years. I was also much better at remembering the pattern so didn't need to keep checking and counting which row I was on. This time round the scarf flowed quickly.
Before I knew it I'd finished the skein of yarn and I am so pleased with the finished result :-) For once I'm actually looking forward to the Winter so that I can wear it!
