For Sara Katsan

Here is the Faggot Diamond Pattern from Mary Thomas's Book of Knitting Patterns (1943).

Is this close to what you are looking for? I think your sample has chain/traveling stitches that may cross differently at the top of the diamond but it is definitely close.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all! I finished my Christmas knitting on Dec. 23 -- here is a picture of all the woolen goodies blocking. I got the ends all woven in with time to spare on Christmas Eve!

3 pairs of socks, 2 hats, 1 pair of mittens, 1 pair of slippers, 1 Christmas stocking and a partridge in a pear tree. . . .

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a happy knitterly New Year!

A $300 Scarf?

I was just sitting here lusting over the new Patternworks Spring catalog when I noticed something called "Batooga Scarf Pattern" which calls for 9 colors of their new "Shokay" Tibetan yak down yarn.
