Making progress backwards ...

Have just spent a merry few minutes unraveling this and this and rewinding the yarns into balls so they can be used for something else. In both cases I like the yarns and the patterns, just not with each other. In the first I felt the yarn was a little too thin and the fabric thus a little too limp plus the colour changes were forming much stronger horizontal lines than I expected and I found those a litle too jarring visually contrast. In the second I liked the multicolour against the simple texture changes at the beginning but as the rows got longer and the colours got more scattered and pooled less ... well, not so good.

One advantage of knitting over sewing; it's possible to undo your fabric and remake it. :-)

I'm halfway tempted to try the fluorescent multicolour with the zigzag scarf pattern because it would be utterly cool if the colours pooled in zigzag fashion up the zigzag (though I have a sneaking suspicion that the entire colour repeat may be longer than the scarf's circumference which would make it not work ... but I'll still try it just to see)
