I got the same errors, and sorted this out with following steps:

1. Just in case a miss, do gem install zen-grids as found at http://zengrids.com/,
2. Uncomment require 'zen-grids' in config.rb line #29.
3. Do compass clean at sub-theme directory, to clean up previous css with some errors all over the css files.
4. Do compass compile at sub-theme directory to regenerate new css files.
5. The last step is to follow direction from here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7815114/compiling-sass-using-compass-...
So instead of:
sass --watch sass:css
I did:
sass --compass --watch sass:css

And new edits at sass directory are updated in css directory. So far so good, hope no more errors :)

I believe you can just do:
compass --watch

It all should be taken care of by the config.rb file that is included in the STARTERKIT. It specifies the sass/css directories and also points to the "sass-extensions" directory where an included copy of zen-grids can be found.

Do remember to uncomment require zen-grids in config.rb as mentioned in #1 if you want to use that compass library.

I should make a point of saying that I am one of those poor, misguided souls who still uses Windows.

:D I'm using Windows too, although I have to admit that I do most of my dev work inside a VirtualBox VM running Ubuntu.

Regardless, AFAIK, compass --watch should work from CMD as well, as long as you have ruby, sass and compass installed correctly.

sass --watch sass:css will never work since the Zen theme requires Compass extensions.

Instead, use: compass watch
