C is for Chevron. I've decided to use the Socks that Rock Flower Power for another Chevron scarf. I really liked knitting this pattern before and I thought it would be a good way to play along and use the Rockin' Sock Club yarn while it's current. I saw on the RSC blog that someone else had decided to mix it up a bit and was combining Flower Power with Sherbet in order to knit some sort of two stranded sock. I thought the result was pretty cool, so I went into my sizable STR lightweight stash to see what would compliment Flower Power. It seemed to me that I had two options: Pebble Beach and Purple Rain. I also briefly considered using Space Dust, but I thought the pink and orange/red combo would be too much. In any case, I love Purple Rain and Space Dust by themselves too much to use them for a Chevron, so that decision was easy.
I'm still not sure about the combination of these two colorways. It might be a little to minty teal for me, but I like it more and more as I go so I think I'll keep going for awhile. I also really love knitting on the cheap aluminum needles from Michael's (especially the pink ones). What do you think, will this scarf be hideous or fabulous? You can say you think it's hid, I really won't mind.
