Scarf: Pros and Cons

Pro:  Repetitive, easy to knit while talking/watching TV/in a meeting...
Con:  Repetitive, BORING, especially when you realize that it needs to get done by a deadline, and you're less than halfway through.

Pro:  Cuddly, you can wear it while you're knitting!
Con:  Will it ever be long enough?

Pro:  Cute!  I love the pattern!
Con:  I get tired of the same ol' pattern...

It's this interesting?  It is knit on the diagonal, yet when you lay it out (for blocking) it makes a nice honeycomb/waffle square pattern.  ahem....and easy to spot a mistake in the middle, while blocking...

Pattern:  19th-Century Honeycomb Stitch Scarf by Diana Foster, from Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders
Yarn:  Footprints by Blue Ridge Yarns, Fingering/4 ply, 100% merino, 400 yds.
 (I bought this thinking it was going to be socks, then I realized with no nylon, it wouldn't be MY socks!  It comes in two parts:  One is what you see above, and the other is 30g of a dark green, almost solid, meant to be toes and heels.  I, unquestionably, thought it would be something strong like nylon.  Not.)
