Here are a couple of patterns I've been trying out:
This is a basket weave pattern.
Here's a zigzag pattern. I really liked this one.
One of the books I bought combines two things I love. Knitting and nerds.
My favorite project in this book is a pattern for "Hobbit Feet Socks". They're socks with "fur" knitted into it, just like hobbit feet!
Excited to start.
