Jenni asked for a picture of my chevron scarf, so I'm obliging her... keep in mind that this hasn't been blocked so it's a bit wobbly!
This is an incredibly popular pattern these days -- it comes from a book called "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson. This probably takes longer than anything in the book; it's quite easy but you still have to pay close attention every 4th row. I'm using two colors of Koigu hand-dyed wool, which is wonderful to work with and seems to be going a really long way! I think this is about 2 feet long -- hope to have it done by the time the weather gets cold again. It's a good bus and airplane project since it's so compact.
