Red Diamond Afghan

This is my first post to a knitting blog, so I am excited to kick it off with a photo of a recently completed project. I have a hard time finishing what I start (a common condition among the knitters I know), so it was especially satisfying to bind off after finishing this one. There were a lot of false starts with this project, as it's a pattern of my own design and I had to start over a couple of times to figure out what I wanted to do. If anyone has some suggestions on how to better photograph knitting, please let me know.  Thanks!

That's beautimous!  Any chances you might share the pattern?

Nice work! Please, do share the pattern, even if it's rough -- needle size, approx amount of yarn.

A bed, with a neutral coloured cover is quite often a good place to display knitting for photos - especially if the bedroom is large enough to let you move around to get the best angles.

Striking!  Really well done patterning - I like the open work between the diamonds and how that contrasts with the solid diamonds a lot.

Isn't satisfying to rework and rework the beginning and finally come up with something so well done?


Think less, enjoy it more.

That looks great. You like designing lots of lace patterns, I notice. ;)

That's definitely true.  I think adding some lace into an otherwise solid piece of knitting adds interest.  :)  Yarrr(n)!

I keep coming back to look at this, it's that cool!  Please share the pattern with us.
