Chevron Jewel Scarf & Podster Gloves

Chevron Jewel Begun
I have a bunch of projects on the needle at the moment, but this scarf has got to be my favorite of the bunch. I was up working on it by cell phone light in the middle of the night. It’s a simple chevron pattern available from Brenda over at Molecular Knitting. I had the pattern memorized before the end of the first row. Highly recommended! The yarn is the new Knit Picks Chroma in Roller Skate. I’m already dreaming up variations and wondering what yarn to try next.

Mom's Podster
I’m also working on convertible gloves… Podster by Knitting To Stay Sane. The pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry. I’ve only made fingerless gloves before, so I was nervous about tackling this new challenge, but the pattern is written beautifully and makes the process simple. The blue-green pair for Mom is another colorway from the Chroma line.

My Podster
The pink and black pair are for myself using some SockPixie Tencel that’s been hiding in my stash for a few years now. I will probably grab more Chroma in Roller Skate to make a pair of these to go with the lovely scarf… possibly modifying it to incorporate the chevrons.
