I'm in love with my Scrappy Creekbed. The pattern is free here! It's designed by Stephen West who is my idol because he can knit while he walks and dances.
I used one purchased skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock in a blue-green color as my anchor yarn. I then raided my stash and found about 6 colors of fingering weight yarn that I thought would compliment. It's mostly bits of Rowan 4 Ply Soft and Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4 Ply and a few unlabeled and unknown bits.
The Chevron pattern is so easy and so Missoni-ish.
Inspired and craving more chevron stripes, I went to my lys to purchase the beautiful book, The Fine Line to make the stunning Volt in the exact colors of the book sample. But...I will not allow myself to cast on until I finish two quickies that are on my needles, a scarf and a cape. Ravelry link.
Some more chevron stripey fun!
