First pictures...

...with my very first illusion knitting piece. I figured I would do some kind of simple design like a diamond or a heart just to begin.

Attached is what I have so far.

I've gone and done it again...

If I don't have enough projects that I'm working on, I've begun learning a new (new to me) technique.

For some reason, I've always been extremely apprehensive about Illusion/Shadow knitting.

Looking for pattern...

A friend of mine described a sweater with a shawl-type/style neck


'don't believe I've ever heard of such a thing...

I honestly don't know...

This time of year...

I'm just in a good mood. This is the beginning of my favorite time of year, and I'm just happy and want to tell folks.

...just to talk and share my feelings...

Garter Yoke Cotton T

I took the pattern that I designed and instead of making a sweater out of it, dug out one of my pound cones of Peaches-n-Cream cotton and made a short sleeve pullover from it.

The Garter Yoke Sweater

This is the newest pattern that I designed that's going into my second book. I'm wicked excited about it!

Sockweight Sweater

I used a sockweight wool/acrylic blend (the shop I got it from just called it "Special") to make this.

New Pattern

I just had to tell SOMEONE!!!

When the computer was on the blink and I thought I lost everything, what did I do to calm my nerves? I cast on and just started knitting!

Lily's Wool

One of my better friends from England sent me a WHOLE POUND CONE! of sockweight wool!!!

Of course, this being a hat, it's definately doubled up...

...and well, as quoted from "The Birdcage"

Kevin's Hat

So, I was working on this bit of energy spurt with the CapsForKids, and the housemate was intent on convincing me that this hat was going to be his.
