Shadow: Learning a New Technique

Shadow knitting aka illusion knitting seems more like magic than actual work. I started a shop sample and discovered I cannot put it down. All I want is to see more of the image emerge from my needles. I started with a very simple piece to be a washcloth.

The book I am using is by Vivian Hoxbro called Shadow Knitting. It has some lovely wearables in it and I want to do the rainbow jacket on page 88. Until then I will just learn the basics and hope to be able to photograph it to show here on the blog later in the month.

I hope everyone is finding a new technique they want to get excited about~!
