Come on Aboard, I Promise You it Won't Hurt the Horse

Yes, I've jumped on the Chevron Scarf bandwagon. I picked up a some Lorna's Laces over the weekend for my April/May Project Spectrum knitting, one skein of Envy and one of Tickled Pink in the sport weight. I'll try to get a daytime, outdoor photo of this, it looks a little dull in the photo below:

Preppy Chevron

It's pretty quick knitting, I've knit about 18 inches in six days without a lot of dedication. I knit while I got a pedicure (featured polish: Can You Dig It? by SpaRitual), and a little at home. I tried to knit it in the car, but I kept making mistakes on the pattern row--it's a very portable project, but it does require a little attention. The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

There are a lot of gorgeous Chevrons out there, many that are more interesting than mine. Don't get me wrong, I do like this yarn in this pattern, and it's nice to put down the tiny needles for a little bit. But I recommend checking out the Flickr group, the range of colors is amazing. Or just Google it--you've heard of the Google, right?

You know what? you are a role model - I have just ordered the same colours! hope you don't mind... They just look so good together, like a bunch of roses and, bizarrely, strawberry cream chocolates!
What are those needles you are using?
