hi everyone,

My name is theresa (aka fibercrone) and I'm new to this blog. As soon as I saw a Chevron Scarf on Ravelry I knew I had to knit one. I got the pattern/book yesterday, my acceptance into this group today, (Thank you kindly.) so am all ready to cast on except for one small glitch. I can't decide which two colors to start with. Maybe STR lightweight Little Bunny Foo Foo and Spring Fling? I wonder how long the scarf would be with only one skein each.

New Scarf and New to this Blog

Hello! This is my first entry on this KAL, and I've finally started the Chevron Scarf. It's an easy pattern with great results! I'm sure the endurance factor will kick in soon, as I begin to wonder just how long 75 inches really takes to knit......Hmm.......
I'm using yarn from Fearless Fibers (Etsy). The colorways are "Sublime" and Infatuation." Does anyone have any great straight needles that they are using? I'm not loving the ones that I have right now, and I'm in the market for new ones....I'm such a fan of circs, but this project is probably better suited to straights. I'm open to any suggestions!

And another new member....

I am loving this Chevron Scarf pattern! This is my second scarf and I am planning more. This is made from Koigu KPPPM.

New member!

Hello everyone, I'm new here! My SP11 hostess invited me to join after she saw my Chevron on my blog so here I am!

I blatantly "stole" my colour combination from Tiennie of Tiennie Knits but I have two more planned (if I can ever finish this one).

I want to love the needles, but I just can't. They're too long. I either need shorter straights or some circular needles, so I think I'll admit this to myself now and then pick up some Addis at iKnit when I head down for next week's knit night. Then I might actually finish it. (This needle preference is a complete turnaround. I used to hate circs...)

Anyway, here's the latest glamour shot of my scarf. It will be a gift for a friend back home in Seattle (incidentally, sorry Tiennie, but that means there will be three scarves of this exact colour combination running around the same part of the world. Probably not the best choice on my part now that I think of it. But it's so perfect for my friend I didn't really think before running to Blue Moon to get more yarn!)

The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock mediumweight and the colours are "Monsoon" (the darker colour, and the Rockin' Sock Club 2007 yarn for February) and Footzey Foo.

my 3rd chevron

Hey all! I've finally finished my 3rd chevron:

More info and pictures can be found here. I really enjoy knitting these chevrons but I think I'll take a break for a bit. I still get to enjoy all of yours though! Thanks! Tiennie

Another one cast on...

I've started on my second Chevron scarf, using Socks that Rock Mediumweight in Backstabber (maroons) and Chapman Springs (blues/teals with accents of lemon and maroon). I'm already planning the colors for the next one....

I added the 'fancy ends' to the needles myself using polymer clay; it adds to the enjoyment of knitting with scrumptious yarn to use fun and funky needles.

My Finished Chevron

I totally forgot to post this here. I finished my scarf on August 29th - more details at my blog The Furry Terrier.

Almost 1/2 Done!

Nothing much to say, just wanted to show off a pic!

Finished Scarf

I made mine from 2 skeins Koigu KPPM (the turquoise) and one of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock (the red). I think I used size 5 needles.

I was worried about how it would look before I blocked it and it still wants to form ribs as it hangs. . . I haven't worn it yet, it's still too hot, but I hope it keeps its shape. It was a simple, fun things to knit.

New here!

Hello everyone! I am new to this group:o) I started this Chevron Scarf a few months ago and haven't been really good about working on it. I really love socks, so that takes up most my knitting time:o) Also, I have never been the type of knitter that can stick to one project until it's finished. I used to laugh at my sister when she counted the many projects that she was working on - but I understand now why that is possible:o)

Anyway, I am using STR in Lucy and Pucks Mischief and I am really loving the way it's knitting up. The color combo is very wearable for me - it has a great mix of neutal colors with little splashes of brighter color. Right now it's well over three feet long (that's what the marker is for) and hopefully joining this KAL is going to inspire me to finish it this year;o)

If you'd like to see my other WIPs, check out my flickr page at:

Thanks for reading and happy knitting:o)

Hi All

Hi Everyone. I just wanted to drop by and introduce myself. My name is Heather and I am new to this Knitalong. I am so glad that I found it. I started my Chevron scarf a couple of days ago. Here are a few pictures of the WIP. I am using Yarntini's "Pure Fall" and my Rockin' Sock Club August colorway "Flower Power". So far I like the way that this pattern is knitting up. It's knitting up pretty fast, when I do get the chance to pick it up (I have a new born in the house). Let me know what you think. More details here.
Enjoy and Happy Knitting.
