I've had a question or two about the scarf I'm working on. It's the Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, a beautiful book. A whole bunch of people are knitting this scarf right now and posting pictures here.
As Ms. Frick pointed out, it falls in the murky "more than 24 hours" section of the book, also known as "there be dragons." But I have to say it's going wickedly fast. I think the reason is it's so, literally, compelling. Every other row is patterned, and it just comes naturally to think Well I'll do one more even row. No, I'll do one more patterned row. But then...
The colors are so baroquely piled up. The fans so Victorian, and yet so alive. The yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock lightweight in Socktopus and Foofaraw, and I'm using size 5 needles. I think that should get you enabled as can be, if you are interested.
As our agent says when he signs all his emails, "Onward."
