Chevron Scarf

The neverending Chevron Scarf is nearly finished. It is blocking and just needs to dry. It seems like I have been knitting this forever and according to Ravelry I started it last July. The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in the 'more than 8 hours category'. I won't argue with that. Mine took considerably more than 8 hours to knit.

Kate, those colours are gorgeous! I tend to think that when the patterns are given a time, that you should double it. 'Cause the pattern makers dont usually have to answer to the call of their kids!!

Oooh, those colors are just gorgeous. You're so good to keep track in Ravelry. I have an account, but I always forget to check in.

So luscious! I'm working on the exact same project (in the same colors) now!

Did you have problems with "pooling"? For me, the navy bits always seem to be on the left side and the green bits on the right. So I'm switching needle sizes to help spread the color changes a bit. Is it just me?
