December KAL: Poinsettia

My finished version of our December 1st KAL:   Poinsettia
Mine will be used as a square within a blanket, so I knit it with acrylic worsted, Vanna White's yarn.

Day 5 rows

Here's my cloth up thru today [row 60].
I'm doing mine in worsted yarn, and it will go into a blanket -
a knitting group I belonged to this year, we exchanged 8inch blanket squares each month -
So, now I need a few more to finish my blanket - this will be perfect!

And it snows some more --

Some views as seen from our yard -
we live east of Buffalo ~
at least four feet of snow with a couple feet on our roof ~
Anyone got a shovel??!!

Here is my finished Vintage Flowers dish-cloth, from eye-level [often it's not easy to get a good shot at that angle!]

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?!
