illusion knitting sample

Illusion Knitting !
 this is such a fun style of knitting - the *picture* appears from a different view than from above!!
Something *new* for those who are tired of doing plain, ordinary knit and purls.
Though you still do knit/purl, the *mystery* of the design puts a different slant on knitting it [pun intended!] ~

This is one I recently finished knitting to display for the monthly knit-along group which I belong to ~
The pattern is called *Vintage Flowers* -
I liked it because it immediately made me think of my grandmother's afghan, the black background and the colorful flowers scattered upon it.
  
  View 1:  from above - how we usually look at things - this is what you see:





View 2:  Now, if you bring the dish-cloth to your eye level, look what you see:




Coooool, eh?!

Mid-May KAL 2013

This is our current KAL ~
am posting these photos for those who want to be re-assured that their dishcloth pattern *looks  right* !

There are two close-up views so you can see the cable taking shape at the borders on either side.
This is just one cloth; the color change is from the light in the room ~the center photo shows the color the best [Sugar & Cream brand, color name: Cream ]
[This post will be removed at the close of our KAL.]

September
 Our first KAL for September was designed by our group *leader* - Janet.
Thank you for another awesome pattern!
  I was asked to conduct the daily emails - it was fun!  I loved the mystery of giving just a few rows each day - and wondering what others thought it would turn out to be!
Janet is a genius with a knitting needle!
Her cloth is called, Vines 'N Stripes - I did mine in a deep lavender color:
