The scarf that never ends?

“This is the scarf that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friends. Someone started knitting it not knowing what it was, and now they keep on knitting it forever just because…”
Do you get where this is going?

Be Simple Variations Scarf

It feels like this is just going on and on.  I am enjoying it and it isn't entirely mindless. This project is a subtle pleasure which I have been breaking up with other things.
