It's an illusion

Peggy (Patty? - I can't get into my comments to check) asked me a few entries back about illusion knitting.

For anyone who hasn't been visiting the knitting lists in the past few years, illusion knitting is a technique whereby you create an image that is only visible when viewed by the side. You create this image by working alternatively in two colors in garter and reverse stockinette stitch.

Here's a good website I found about knitting machines and illusion knitting, although the technique works for hand knitting, too.

I posted a chart to knit a shroud of turin using the illusion knitting method. Whether you think this is sacreligeious or just silly fun is up to you. Marilyn aka, KC is having a Shroud of Turin Knitalong. I'm smiling!

I'm waiting for my copy of the new Harry Potter to arrive. Yes, I've read them all and I love them. I have my 6 year old daughter convinced that I'm Mrs. Weasely (red hair, knits all the time, motherly, slightly overweight, red-headed kids...) and, by extension, Hannah's POSITIVE that when she's 11 she'll get an invitation to Hogwarts. I'd love to go with her.
