Knitting Practice

I bought a couple of new knitting books this past weekend and spent some time practicing new stitch patterns. I love the fact that just a few variations in your basic knit and purl sequences can result in such pretty and complicated-looking patterns.

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.
