Crossover Rib socks

These socks have been a long time in the making (since November) but then most days I don't get to knit for more than about 10 minutes, and some days not at all...
I'm very happy with how they turned out though.
I love this book, it's been so useful.
More details on my blog.

Diamonds Pattern, but not Socks

I used the Diamonds Pattern from mSKS to knit this doll sweater. It was a good learning experience, even if the sweater is "nothing to write home about". I used Knitpicks Pallet for the cream color and Knitpicks essential for the colors. Unfortunately the variegated colors are too bold, and don't work well with this sort of patterning, and the pallet had too much of a different "texture" to work well with the Essential. But learning is all part of the fun. And sharing is too. Maybe my attempt can motivate someone else to try, and succeed :-)
