Mmmm... rayon. I always thought it was overrated until I picked up a luscious skein at the Blue Moon Fiber Arts de-stashing sale. It is beautiful, drapey, and just a joy to work with.
I apologize for the crappy photos, my digital camera appears to be on its way out. I tried a bunch of different lighting methods, but camera just refuses to pick up all the wonderful colors in this yarn. Oh well, you're all here for the pattern anyway, not to hear me gush about yarn, right?
I thought a simple chevron would best show off the magnificent colorway, and I really like the way it turned out.
