...I am a lurker but enjoy hearing and seeing what others are knitting. Heard about "illusion" knitting and after finding some free patterns on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/
I thought I would have a go.
My first effort was a face/dish cloth with a pink breast awareness ribbon on it.
Then I saw a pattern for a piano keyboard scarf and thought this would be perfect for my friend Beth as a 60th birthday present. As a music teacher and Collingwood football fan (team colours being black and white) it ticked all the boxes!
The recipients were both excited about their scarves:)
