The scarf is done in all garter stitch. I call this "oatmeal knitting". It's like comfort food. Knitting without following a pattern, or needing to count or think is comforting.
Of course, knitting this much garter stitch can become so monotonous that you want to put the needles through your eyes. That's why I have decided to work on this project when I need something mindless to knit.
I'll knit it while I'm watching TV (and I mean really watching, not just listening and not looking up). I'll knit it when I'm in the car in the dark (as a passenger of course). I'll knit it when I only have time to pick it up for a moment or two (and I don't have time to figure out where I left off in a pattern). I'll knit it when I'm under the weather (and I don't have the concentration for anything else).
I've got 100 rows done already. I should be done in no time!
