Yardage Question

I just got a skien in a swap it is from Socks that Rock and I just love the colors.. but I only have 1 skien- 325 yards- would this be enough yarn to do a nice sized chevron scarf?
I am working on one right now- out of 2 skiens of spaced dyed cashmere- 87% cashmere 13% nylon it is turning out lovely..
thanks for the help.. will post pics soon.

My Finished Chevron Scarf

Originally uploaded by KristintheMom
Finished my scarf last night! Okay, so it's not quite as long as the book's, I stopped at 62". I decided that was long enough for me and I wanted to move on to something else. Besides, winter is upon us here in Washington state and my neck was getting cold! I made it in STR Medweight, Fred Flintstone and Farmhouse.

At Last.....

I finished my Chevron last night. While it was very slow going for me, I will definitely knit again once I come up with the right color combination.

For this Chevron, I used STR in Lucy and Little Bunny Foo Foo. I knit it about 7" shorter than called for, not that I feared running out of yarn, I just felt that it was long enough for me.

Have a great Thanksgiving and Happy Knitting!

Newbie Chevronette!

I have been dying to start this project since seeing the wonderful work of some the members, most notably Shannon of Minerva Turkey.

Anyhoo, after some last minutes changes to this last minute gift project, I have decided to take a chance and use a different type and weight of yarn than the pattern suggests. I will be using two skeins of Marshmallow from Decadent Yarns.


This is a sport weight yarn made from 80% alpaca and 20% merino fibers. This will be the first time I have used this yarn. I purchased it on a whim at Rhinebeck last month.

My First Chevron Scarf!

I love this pattern! I want to knit more in different colors...but who knows when I'll actually start another one :)

I used Aspen Sock yarn by Red Rocks Fiber Works in the colors "Artichoke" and "One Wild Night". More info here.

It is on my list of things to do. Right now I'm knitting two sweaters for my Grandchildren and a vest for my 84 year old mother-in-law.
O.K. finished the vest and one of the sweaters am now ready to start chevron scarf.

Almost there!!!!

Finished At Last!

I haven't posted recently, have just been working away at this, a little at a time, between projects.

With cooler weather starting here, I was spurred on to finish up last night, and finally, here it is.

I used Scout's Swag merino "Orchids" and Fleece Artist merino 2/6 "Moss, and did a slight modification to the pattern.

Thanks to you all for the inspiration (and excellent colour choices for the next one I do :) !)

Details are at Ravelry: KarinB,
and on my blog soon:

Chevron Scarf

This is the first Chevron Scarf I have made, but I know it is not going to be the last one! I used Cleckheaton Merino Bambino, 2 balls in 2157 and two balls in 1102.
