Chevron on the Brain
There's something irresistible about chevron, and I'm afraid the trend will evaporate as quickly as it's started, but for the time being, in addition to my crocheted chevron afghan, I've cast on this little scarf.
It's an easy and repetitive pattern, the Wavy Lace Scarf, and self-striping sock yarn does the hard work. I had picked up more than a few of these big balls at Tuesday Morning.
The new year sparked a bit of self-indulgent knitting after making mitts for the family for the holidays. I finally found the perfect pattern for a ball of mohair yarn with a hint of shiny lurex that I brought back from Italy a couple of years ago. The Melissa Scarf is an easy, fast and satisfying pattern (even though it has no chevrons). It feels cozy around my neck in the cold wet weather that has finally blown in.
