I Will Not Give Up Now

I´ve actually thought about throwing this project in the bin many times, and never ever think of it again. But I constantly find myself knitting on this scarf. I´ve finally made peace with the thing and have decided to finish it. 

No matter how much more I´m going to hate this awful, terrible, horrible yarn called Zauberball. Gosh, it is the worst yarn ever.

The spinning of it must have been done while someone was aslepp: It goes from super thin as in sewing thread to chunky. Some places the yarn just brakes while knitting. And the length of the various colors are very different in all the skeins. This means that black and green always collide - I´ve taken out huge amount of these colors.

Not to mention the prize. It´s like believing that you´ve bought a steak only to find out you came home with dogfood (if you´re not a dog that is).

Anyway, if there´s not larger problems to take care of I shouldn´t complain. Or what did I just do... Off to finish this. Have a lovely day everybody.
