that I like and not complicated is not easy. Sometimes I find a pattern and try it . I think I like it then make it for a scarf. After awhile I start hating the pattern and hating the scarf. Has anyone ever done that??

LOL - I call it the 80% Rule and it applies mainly to big projects but it can apply to anything.  (Some people call it the 90% Rule or even the 70% Rule.)  When you are about 80% done, it seems like there is 80% more to go; you make mistakes; the yarn suddenly becomes sticky and knots.  You hate the yarn, the pattern, the project.  Just motor through - you'll love the final results ; )     ....yep that is what it feels like and I can hardly wait to finish the project. One thing is I hope not to do that pattern again.
