Here are a couple of things I've made recently. The first is a 4x2 ribbed beanie made without a pattern. My first attempt was slightly too big, so I frogged it & reduced the # of stitches. It's now my favourite.
Last weekend I embarked on my first attempt at illusion knitting. I think it turned out great for a first try. I'll probably turn it into a cushion or somesuch. I love this picture of Scruff, he looks like he's planning to take over the world with an army of knit-bots.
