As part of a "March Madness" challenge on a Ravelry group I belong to, we were to pick 3 projects to accomplish during March. Mine were: 1) The Skype beanie. 2) Finish the "Spiraling Purl" socks. 3) Begin a new project with the 2nd skein of yarn used for the socks.
This is my long-time friend Mickey, wearing the birthday present I knitted for him. Simply Red Heart Knitting Worsted, and a vintage pattern. Being that Mickey is quite short, I had to subtract some length from the body and sleeves. It was an easy knit nonetheless.
This is a cut and paste from ravelry. Not sophisticated enough to figure out the linking, but if you are interested there is a blog section on ravelry to get all the vitals and sign up
i used Kevat (spring in Finnish, or so i'm told) pattern
qiviuk 56 gr

About an hour ago, one of my former students from two years ago visited me at school. He is on the USA Paralympic Hockey team and just got back from Sochi, Russia. We had parent-teacher conferences tonight and he brought his gold medal over for me to see. I was so touched and honored that he would do that. I had fun holding and wearing the medal and posing with him.
Hi hope every one is doing well haven't posted in a while and thought I would add some pictures of what I've been up to lately. Some are projects from last winter and the socks are the newest project. It's a mix of Knitting, Crochet and some Tunisian Crochet.
I offered a few spring pics recently. Unfortunately it has been overcast for several days. Here is a splash of color (if you like yellow).
Yellow Jasmine from my work, I eat lunch under it almost daily.
Iris blooming, spring can't be far off now.
Daffodil beginning to fade.
Here is the Faggot Diamond Pattern from Mary Thomas's Book of Knitting Patterns (1943).
Is this close to what you are looking for? I think your sample has chain/traveling stitches that may cross differently at the top of the diamond but it is definitely close.
