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!

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.

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: http://pointeshoespunkrockandpurl.blogspot.com/
