My very first thought when I saw this
was "hmm, maybe she works in a law firm or a bank, that's why she knitted it in that bland ugly color":
Because I am afraid I would knit this thing. My hands get cold at work, often I wear cheap gloves with the fingertips cut off all year round. For work I would knit it in something striped.
But I would never knit this:
This is just too much stockinette stitch.
