I thought I was done with scarves.

DSC01020.JPGBeen there, done that, loving socks. Or so I thought. Well, the “loving socks” part is still true. But after wrapping up yet another gorgeous Fiesta Boomerang color combination for Shannon, who is turning them into Chevron scarves, I googled and learned. After seeing just a few samples, I went straight to the bookstore to get Last Minute Knitted Gifts and the pattern. DSC01021.JPGI picked two colors of Boomerang (Madrid and Plum Pudding), wound them up, and off I went. I am having such a fun time knitting this scarf and I love how it’s turning out. In fact, I have several more color combinations in mind, so I may be doing more than this one. Knitting Daughter started her own Chevron Scarf with two of the new colors of All Things Heather that will be up in next week’s Sneak Up. She’s having fun with it, too! Is anyone else out there working on one of these scarves? My Interlacement Tiny Toes socks have been set aside temporarily.

It looks like the final list for this week’s Sneak Up will include: Skinny Duets, Woolly Boully Softie (including a new custom color for us!), Fleece Artist Somoko, Lime & Violet Sasquatch Sock, and our J.Knits Anniversary yarn, plus the Ham’s Jams knitting bags. As always, more currently in-house and waiting to be photo-ed for the Sneak Up after this one……

We have another free pattern for you! Wonderfully Generous Wendy has given us another one of her patterns to share as a free download over in the “Free Patterns” section on the right side of this blog. (She is having way too much fun designing socks this summer.) This one is called “Cabletini Toe Up Socks” and it’s a very pretty pattern, knit with 2 skeins of Nature’s Palette. I love cables, and this new pattern is going directly into my “knit soon” pile.

DSC01019.JPGSusan-the-awesome-assistant is back from her second vacation in three weeks. I might have to forgive her for doing that to me because she brought me this cute little sheep decoration. ๐Ÿ™‚ Speaking of vacations, Loopy has had some fun ones. Have you checked into his photo gallery lately? There are over 100 photos in there. And did you know that we currently have 284 sock photos in our Socks on Trees photo gallery? If you want to know how a particular yarn line knits up, check out the photo gallery. Chances are we have it somewhere in there to inspire you!

  1. Aha! another great project! You are a great enabler! LOL! (I mean that in the best way possible of course!) I had intended to buy some Fiesta soon anyway, but this entry put me over the edge, and before I knew it I ended up with 4 skiens. 2 will be a scarf and 2 will be socks! Thank you for supplying such great yarn! Now I’m off to the bookstore . ..

  2. The scarf is incredible. Just beautiful. Ooh, I want one just like it! I hope you don’t mind my being such a copycat, Sheri…

  3. I agree about the addictive quality of the chevron scarf–I just started one in contrasting shades of Shaeffer Lola and it is looking great. I changed up the stitch somewhat, though, after browsing through the terrific pictures at the Chevron Scarf Flickr group. It’s an awesome project, though–mindless enough to work while watching sports or a movie or listening to a book on cd, but still creating a really interesting result. I can see that this could become a staple for Christmas giving! Might need to get me some Fiesta for my next one….

    As for Blueberry Ice Tea … mmm. I haven’t tried the Starbucks version yet, but I am enjoying the Crystal Light version I found at the local Acme. Next time I get to Starbucks that will be mine! Keep cool– :o)

  4. I love the scarf that you knitted. The colors are beautiful. But hate the fact that I see another project in the works. I have sooo many things that I am in the middle of and there you go tempting me to add another. :0) Hey, if you only have one or two projects going at once then there has to be something wrong with you and you are not busy enough. :0)

  5. OK – so I just had to go out today and purchased the book to make the Chevron Scarf! I found 2 skeins of Claudia Handpainted in Sunrise, and was wondering what to add to it, and found 2 skeins of Koigu that I’ve had for about a year — and I think it just might work! Thanks, Sheri, for all the inspiration! Now, if you could only add minutes to my day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Please can one of you Chevronettes answer a question for me: When working with two colors, do you knit two rows with each one? THANKS!!!
