I sat down with my newest acquisition last night and swatched. Then I cast on and started some 2x2 ribbing with intentions of making just a simple v-neck pullover. By looking at swatch number two here, you can probably tell why I stopped and ripped it all out. It was screaming "I want to be knit in chevron stitch, please!". Those bright stripes are perfect for it. I remembered from knitting Butterfly that that particular Noro book had some other chevron items. I think I'm going to give Ripley a try. This yarn really isn't the right gauge, but I'm going to try to wing it. Shouldn't be too hard since this is a drop shoulder.
